Downtown Rotary hosts attorney general candidate forum

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - South Dakota voters will elect a new attorney general in less than a month.

On Monday, Democratic candidate Randy Seiler held a open forum in downtown Sioux Falls to answer questions from voters.

He said addiction and government transparency will be his top priorities if elected.

"Certainly I want to look at issues with respect to opioids and meth and breaking that cycle of addiction," Seiler said. "You can't cure addiction with incarceration. I want to address issues with respect to that. I'm gonna look at issues regarding public corruption and a review of conflicts of interest and transparency, those kinds of programs."

Republican candidate Jason Ravsnborg was unable to attend the event due to a scheduling conflict.

The two will face off on Nov. 6 at the polls.
