Ravnsborg wins South Dakota Attorney General race


The Associated Press - November 7, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Republican lawyer and Army Reserve officer Jason Ravnsborg will be South Dakota's next attorney general.

Ravnsborg will be the latest in a long line of Republicans to be the state's chief lawyer and law enforcement officer. Ravnsborg on Tuesday overcame former U.S. Attorney Randy Seiler, who touted his prosecutorial experience.

Ravnsborg, a partner at a Yankton law firm, campaigned as the candidate favored by the law enforcement community. He's proposed expanding programs allowing lower-level prisoners to work and establishing a meth-specific prison and mental health facility in the central or western part of the state.

Ravnsborg succeeds outgoing Republican Attorney General Marty Jackley. The high-profile office has served as a frequent springboard for gubernatorial hopefuls and takes on the state's top legal cases.
