South Dakota Gov. Noem Gets Emphatic Win With AG’s Removal

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem got an emphatic victory when the Senate removed Attorney General Jason Ravensborg from office by convicting him of impeachment for killing a pedestrian with his car.

Noem pressed impeachment through the Republican-controlled Legislature.

She provided crucial support on an effort that at times faced razor-thin vote margins. Though her aggressive approach riled some lawmakers, Ravnsborg’s ouster provides Noem with some key benefits.

She can name his replacement, discredit a one-time adversary who had investigated her and claim political independence because she held a fellow Republican accountable.
