PHOENIX -

One year ago he was disbarred, stripped of his license to practice law. But that isn't stopping Andrew Thomas from pursuing his goal to be Arizona's next governor.

We've confirmed that Thomas will throw his hat into the ring and file the necessary paperwork Friday.

The former county attorney was disbarred after an ethics probe found abuses of power. Before that, Thomas stepped down as county attorney to run for attorney general, but lost to current Attorney General Tom Horne in the primary.

He has since maintained his innocence of the findings against him.

Upon his announcement to the media, Thomas said, "I am confident public surveys will show upon my filing that I am a leading candidate for Governor. I'll be focusing on the need to protect public safety, ensure border security, and fight corruption, among other issues."
