Andrew Thomas Launches TV AD #2--"Nothing To Smile About Tom"

Attorney General Candidate Andrew Thomas Unveils Second Commercial of Campaign:
“That's Nothing To Smile About Tom”
PHOENIX, ARIZONA JULY 27, 2010.  Andrew Thomas’ campaign for Arizona Attorney General unveiled its second television commercial yesterday: “That's Nothing To Smile About Tom”.  The ad is now airing statewide. 
The video can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCuWn0PXtbs
The spot highlights Thomas’ stance against amnesty for illegal immigrants and taxpayer funded abortion.  Thomas is the most conservative candidate in the Attorney General race.  Liberal Republican Tom Horne supports both amnesty for illegal immigrants and taxpayer funded abortions.
Thomas has been endorsed by notable Arizona law enforcement leaders including Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Yavapai County Sheriff Steve Waugh, Mohave County Attorney Matthew Smith, Mohave County Sheriff Tom SheahanPinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu,Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever, Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, Arizona Police Association and former Arizona Attorney General and NRA President Bob Corbin.  Former Arizona State Senator Jonathan Paton, Arizona Right to Life, former Congressman Tom Tancredo and the NRA have endorsed Thomas as well.
During Thomas' time in office, crime rates plummeted.  The 19 percent drop is more than twice the national rate of decline, in despite of an 11 percent increase in the county's population during that time.  The illegal immigrant population has dropped by anywhere from 18 percent (Dept. of Homeland Security estimate) to 30 percent (Center for Immigration Studies estimate). Like the fall in crime rates, this dramatic decline in illegal immigration is far greater than the average in the rest of the nation. 
Thomas has a track record of successfully defending illegal immigration crackdowns in our courts, including his successful efforts to prosecute illegal immigrants for conspiring to violate the state's human-smuggling law and to defend Prop 200's voter ID requirements and the employer-sanctions law, which he defended along with the Attorney General's Office.
If elected Attorney General Thomas has pledged to expand that office's prosecutions of illegal immigrants under the state's human smuggling laws. The office is not currently pursuing such prosecutions.
Thomas is married with four children.  He is a graduate of Harvard Law School.  Prior to serving as Maricopa County Attorney, Thomas served as an assistant attorney general for Arizona, deputy counsel and criminal justice policy advisor to the Governor, special assistant to the Director of the Arizona Department of Corrections, and a deputy county attorney.
