Andrew Thomas Concedes in AG's Race -- Finally

Have to admit, we're gonna miss using photos of that 'stache/
It's been fairly clear the past few days that former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas was gonna lose the Republican primary for state attorney general to Tom Horne. But he refused to concede.

Can't blame the guy for not throwin' in the towel -- it was a close race. But today he made it official and conceded to Horne.

In a statement, Thomas says it's apparent that Horne won the race with what the Associated Press is now saying is an 887-vote lead. About 900 votes remain to be counted.

Thomas bowed out relatively gracefully, pledging to support Horne in the general election. 


It should be noted that Thomas' ringing endorsement of Horne comes after he spent months attacking the guy (sometimes via Sheriff Joe Arpaio) in one of this year's nastier political primaries.

Horne will now face Democratic candidate Felecia Rotellini in the general election.

As for Thomas' stint with public life: don't let the door hit ya in the ass on your way out, pal; Andrew Thomas is done-zo -- for now, anyway.

Thomas said last week that he was preparing to jump back into private life by representing faith-based organizations as their attorney (assuming he's still allowed to practice law, of course).

New Times had some other ideas as to what the former county attorney could do with all his new-found free time. Check it out here.

And, to bid Thomas a final adieu, enjoy one of our favorite moments in mustache history:

I can't believe we are finally rid of that freckle faced freak of nature. There is a God after all. Mr. Andrew Thomas, you are human garbage... rest in Hell, ASSHOLE.

New Times: Even though Andy is fading into the sunset, will you PLEASE run the stache pic every once in a while just for old times' sake? I'm gonna miss that cheezy Level 3 Sex Offender picture.

FYI, there is one opponent for Bill Montgomery for Maricopa County attorney - Michael Kielsky (Libertarian).

I shed a tear...of joy when I heard that Candy Thomas conceded the race to Tom Horne. Perhaps the biggest question on my mind--aside from the ethics investigation by the State Bar--is will he re-grow the pornstache?

Retired,

You might want to rethink your direction in the after life. If you go to Hell, you may find Thomas Arpaio there and have Hendershott jump up and sit on your lap.

Thomas playing around with faith based organizations is fitting. Satan always attacks faith based on how good it will be if you do things his way.

Thank God I'm going to hell. I would hate the idea of spending eternity in heaven with Andy and his faith-based organizations. Andy I pray your karma will bring you everything you deserve.

A lot of Republicans are happy, but there are also a lot who will end up voting for Rotellini.

hey Andy, what ever happened to not conceding until every last vote was counted? Just one last lie to remember you by you dirtbag.

I was one of the 300 attorneys on the steps of the Superior Court protesting against you last December and I just want to remind you what utter contempt you are held in by the legal community.

Now if we could just get someone other than Bill Montgomery elected County Attorney.

p.s. - Hey Andy! Here's to hoping we never have to see your picture or hear your name for a VERY long time!
