Bosworth's Husband Plans To Run For Attorney General

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth's husband says he will run for South Dakota Attorney General.  Chad Haber made the announcement in a blog post created by his spokesman.  The post outlines Haber's reasoning for why he plans to challenge Attorney General Marty Jackley for the position. 

It reads, "The way South Dakota's current Attorney General Marty Jackley handled the Mette child rape case proves that Jackley is the least qualified person in the state to be the people's representative."

However, in a statement to KELOLAND News, Sara Rabern with the Attorney General's office says it did not "handle the underlying criminal prosecution in the Mette case."  The state also reads that Beadle County prosecutor handled the criminal case.

Haber's spokesman, Lee Stranahan, is not specifying how Haber will become a candidate.  The deadline to file nominating petitions was in April.  In a tweet to KELOLAND's Brady Mallory, Stranahan said, "There are several possible paths to getting on the ballot and we're figuring out the best one."

He also said, via Twitter, "We feel it's important that South Dakota voters have a choice for Attorney General in November.  Competition is good for everybody."

South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant said it is still possible for Haber to get on the November ballot.  While on the phone with KELOLAND News, Gant said, "A recognized political party still has time to have their state convention and nominate candidates."

Gant said he and Haber plan to discuss this matter further.
