Republican AG Candidates Debate

Posted By on Tue, Jun 22, 2010 at 5:43 PM

Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne—two Republicans vying to become Arizona's next attorney general—will face off in a debate tonight, Tuesday, June 22, held by the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

The debate is from 7 to 7:30 p.m. and will be aired on Horizon, a program on the Arizona State University-based PBS station KAET.

All of the candidate debates are posted online within 72 hours on the Clean Elections Commission website here.

The commission will hold another debate tomorrow with the Democratic AG candidates: David Lujan, Vince Rabago and Felecia Rotellini.

Both Republican candidates have had some interesting press lately. In the The Arizona Republic on June 20, Horne faced accusations that he lied about a past bankruptcy. You can read about it here.

Horne, who is seeking the Republican nomination for attorney general, said he regretted not disclosing the bankruptcy. He said he likely made the error because the bankruptcy happened long ago.

"I didn't think about it because it was 40 years ago," he said.

In the June 17 issue of the Republic right here, Thomas said an Arizona State Bar investigation regarding his ethical behavior, as shocking as it may seem, is actually a conspiracy to derail his AG campaign.
