    Embattled South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg is conceding what is readily apparent: He cannot win a second term this year. The Republican state official, who ran down and killed a pedestrian in September 2020, confirmed Friday afternoon that he will not run for re-election. Ravnsborg, who has been impeached and suspended—with pay—from his duties as the state’s top law enforcement official, contacted Dakota News Now reporter Austin Goss on Friday to confirm an earlier report that he would not ask the South Dakota Republican Party to nominate him for a second term. Ravnsborg did not respond to The Daily Beast’s attempts to reach him, and Mike Deaver, the Salt Lake City public relations strategist who has served as his spokesman, did not respond to a phone call or a text. Ravnsborg was charged with three misdemeanors following the Sept. 12, 2020, crash on a lonely highway in central South Dakota that killed 55-year-old Joe Boever, who was walking on the shoulder of the road. Ravnsborg was allowed to leave the scene of the crash by the local sheriff, who...
