PIERRE, S.D.(KJJQ)- There is a second Republican candidate for South Dakota Attorney General and it’s not the current holder of that office, Jason Ravnsborg.

Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Director David Natvig will for the office.

Natvig formerly served as the Brule County State’s Attorney before being tabbed by Ravnsborg to serve as DCI Director in 2018.

Natvig says he’s a leader.

In his announcement video on Facebook, Natvig focused on fighting drugs.

Ravnsborg, recently impeached by the South Dakota State House, says he’s still weighing his options. He faces a Senate impeachment trial next month.

Former Attorney General Marty Jackley is also running for the seat. A candidate will be selected at the South Dakota Republican convention in Watertown in June.
