Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas will begin airing campaign ads touting his campaign to become Arizona’s next governor in the Phoenix media market on Thursday.
Thomas made media buys with KNXV and KTVK for roughly $23,000and $6,000, respectively. An ad on KNXV will air between July 17 and July 23, while the KTVK ad will air through August 13.
The disbarred former county attorney qualified for Clean Elections funding in June, netting him roughly $753,000 to spend on his primary campaign, and has already sent out a statewide mailer hailing himself as a true conservative in contrast to his opponents.
Thomas did not respond to requests for a copy of the advertisement.
Thomas is one of six candidates for the GOP nomination for governor, running against Secretary of State Ken Bennett, state Treasurer Doug Ducey, former GoDaddy executive Christine Jones, former California Congressman Frank Riggs and former Mesa Mayor Scott Smith.
