SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dr. Annette Bosworth says South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley should remove himself from an investigation into possible violations on nominating petitions for candidates.

Bosworth said in a press conference in Sioux Falls Friday that Jackley is investigating her for political reasons and called it "an insult to the good people of South Dakota."

Jackley said in a statement that he does not "have the luxury of walking away from or taking a pass on tough issues."

Secretary of State Jason Gant asked Jackley to investigate Bosworth for allegedly being out of the country during a time when her petitions say she was gathering signatures around the state.

Independent U.S. Senate candidate Clayton Walker is also being investigated, but the reason is unclear.
