Why Conservatives Are Flocking To Andrew Thomas For Attorney General

Why Conservatives Are Flocking To
Andrew Thomas For Attorney General

When it comes to being conservative there is no doubting Thomas.

Andrew Thomas helped write Senate Bill 1070, has fought his whole career for the unborn and been one of the most successful prosecutors in America, reducing crime and illegal immigration.

But don't just take his word for it. Take the word of conservatives like Senate Bill 1070 Sponsor Russell Pearce, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Arizona Right to Life and the National Rifle Association.

They are standing by Andrew Thomas. And we hope you will in the August 24th Republican Primary too. Learn more at
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.
