PHOENIX -- Former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas has filed additional contributions he hopes will qualify him for public funding for his effort to win the Republican nomination for Arizona governor.

Thomas was told last week by the Secretary of State's office that his previous filing was 113 $5 contributions short of the 4,500 needed to win Citizens Clean Election Commission funding. He filed an additional 259 contributions on Tuesday.

If the supplemental filing is certified, Thomas will qualify for nearly $754,0 in public funding.

Thomas is one of six Republicans in the party's primary. State Sen. Al Melvin dropped out Monday after failing to win public funding.

Secretary of State Ken Bennett has qualified and received his public funding. The other four candidates are running with private funding.
