PIERRE (AP) — South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says he will seek re-election this year.

Jackley has served as attorney general since September 2009, when then-Gov. Mike Rounds tabbed him to fill a vacancy created when Larry Long was appointed a circuit judge. The Republican then defeated Democrat Ron Volesky in the November 2010 election to win a four-year term.

Before he became the state's top lawyer, Jackley was South Dakota's U.S. attorney for three years.

No Democrats have announced they will run. State Democratic Party Executive Director Zach Crago says he knows of several Democrats who see an opportunity. He expects them to announce before June.
