(South Dakota) -- Suspended South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg is working to gather supporters for his upcoming election following his impeachment earlier this month.
Ravnsborg's impeachment trial is set to begin on June 21st, just a few days before the state's GOP convention scheduled between June 23rd and 25th. If Ravnsborg is convicted by a two-thirds majority vote within the senate, he will be immediately removed from office and will be barred from running for office under state law.
Ravnsborg's run for office is contested by former Attorney General Marty Jackley. It also has the potential to be contested by Democratic Party Chairman Randy Seiler, who has only pledged to run if Jackley does not secure the Republican nomination for Attorney General in the state.
