Two years after losing a 2002 statewide race for attorney general, Andrew Thomas won the post of Maricopa County attorney. During his six-year reign, Thomas forged an alliance with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and stretched the law to its limit to pursue indictments against undocumented immigrants.

One theme of Thomas’ campaign has been the notion that he was unfairly targeted by the state’s corrupt political system and the Obama administration; as he puts it on his website: “Why did liberal judges and their henchmen attack Andrew Thomas’ law license for five years? Because he’s a warrior who took on the establishment and stopped illegal immigration.”

Thomas qualified for Clean Elections funding last week, which means he’ll have $753,000 to spend on his primary campaign.
