Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas announced Wednesday he is forming an exploratory committee to consider a run for Arizona attorney general in the 2010 election.

Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas announced Wednesday he is forming an exploratory committee to consider a run for Arizona attorney general in the 2010 election.

Thomas, a Republican, first ran for the office in 2002, but Terry Goddard defeated him by 7 percent of the ballots cast in the election.

Goddard has reached his term limit.

Voters elected Thomas county attorney in 2004 and again in 2008.

The exploratory committee allows Thomas to explore the possibility of running and raising a limited amount of money to begin establishing a campaign without having to resign his current post.

He has until May 26, 2010, to turn in his nomination petitions, at which time he would have to resign.

Other Republicans to form exploratory committees are Tom Horne, state superintendent of education, and Sam Crump, who represents north Phoenix in the Arizona House of Representatives.

David Lujan, a Democrat who has represented central Phoenix for three terms in the House of Representatives, has also formed a committee.
