AG Jackley recuses himself from citing conflict of interest

(AP) The South Dakota Attorney General's Office won't provide legal advice on whether a challenger to Attorney General Marty Jackley can qualify for the ballot.
  
Secretary of State Jason Gant is considering whether Chad Haber and Ryan Gaddy were legally nominated as Libertarian candidates for attorney general and public utilities commissioner, respectively.
  
Both men were Republicans who filled out forms to change their party registration to Libertarian just hours before each won the state Libertarian Party's nomination last Saturday. Those forms weren't filed with county auditors until Monday, leaving it uncertain if they qualified with state law.
   
The attorney general's office has recused itself from the matter, citing a conflict of interest. It's unclear where Gant will turn now for legal advice
