Great News!
Today, Thursday May 18th, two fine newspapers endorsed Tom’s candidacy in the May 23rd primary!

The North Little Rock Times and the Maumelle Monitor gave Tom the nod, and concluded “Tom Formicola has the better resume and should get the nomination.”

I appreciate the endorsement from the editorial staff of the North Little Rock Times and the Maumelle Monitor,” said Tom

Pat Lynch show
Yesterday I took a bullet for the party…….I was a guest on the Pat Lynch show! Just kidding, Pat was very gracious in allowing me to express my moderate conservative Republican values and views. We had a lively debate on the key issues, and he invited me to come back to debate Congressman Snyder in the general election phase, should I win the primary on May 23rd.

Pat Lynch agreed that the November election should focus more on Second District and “American issues” than social or moral debate. I would be delighted to enter into such debate with Congressman Snyder.

Thank you again for the invitation to join you on the air, Pat. I had a great time!

From Tom's Notes
5-14-2006

Our campaign has made a conscious effort to purchase ALL of our yard signs, road signs, brochures, and push cards from small businesses and companies located within the Second Congressional District of Arkansas, produced by the hands of Arkansas workers.
I was disappointed to see that my opponent, Andy Mayberry, a former employee of the Arkansas Department of Economic Development, has gone out of his way to purchase thousands of dollars worth of such items from businesses OUTSIDE THE STATE OF ARKANSAS. (Attachment)
If I am elected in the primary, I will continue to support small businesses right here in the Second District, and purchase all campaign materials locally.

From Tom's Notes
5-12-2006

As Pulaski County goes, so goes the general election for US Congress in the Second District.
In 2004, Marvin Parks lost to Congressman Snyder by 43,445 votes, with 43,055 of the spread coming from Pulaski County alone. If Parks could have garnered 50.3% of the vote in Pulaski County, he would be our Congressman today.
I am from Pulaski County. I spent my teen years in North Little Rock, graduating from Northeast HS in 1977.
I spent fifteen of my adult years in Maumelle, where I saw the population go from 3,300 to 14,000. I was actively engaged in that community as a volunteer, coach, and elected official.
I have lived in Little Rock for a total of five years, and have done business in the Little Rock metro area for 23 years, or since my opponent in the primary was in the seventh grade, in Sheridan.
If I am elected to represent the Republican party in the November election, I will be the first opponent Congressman Snyder has faced with the following political profile: A candidate who HAS WON 2 ELECTIONS WITHIN THE BORDERS OF PULASKI COUNTY IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS.
This would give the Republican Party a candidate with a political profile which could quite possibly give Congressman Snyder problems in the general election in November.
Given the opportunity, I can, and will, win 50%+ of the vote in Pulaski County vs. Congressman Snyder.
Just a thought.

From Tom's Notes:

From Tom's notes:
As a pro-life Republican, I am disappointed that Arkansas Right to Life has endorsed my opponent.
This action, however, would not and will not prevent me from taking a pro-life stance in Congress, if elected.
In Congress, many times you vote with your heart, not as an endorsing group would have you vote.
In my heart I am pro-life.

Formicola leads in first Second Congressional District Poll
After just four weeks of campaigning, compared to 14 months of campaigning for opponent Andy Mayberry, Tom Formicola leads in a poll run April 21 thru April 23, 39% to 36%, with 25% of voters still undecided. The poll, conducted by Survey USA, and sponsored by KTHV in Little Rock, polled 414 likely Republican primary voters in the Second Congressional district (please see attachment).

“I am extremely pleased with where we are presently,” said Formicola, who added “to be in the lead without having started our media campaign before the primary is very encouraging.” “I am very grateful and want to thank my supporters.”

The Formicola campaign will not take the results of this poll for granted, and will continue to execute a well organized plan until victory is assured in the May 23rd primary.

Tom Formicola, of Little Rock, is a former Maumelle City Councilman, and is the Regional Sales and Operations Manager for Medtronic, Inc., the world’s largest implantable medical device company. He is married to the former Cindy Huffman of North Little Rock, and has three sons, 19, 16 and 13.
