NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis appeared on Fox & Friends on June 9, 2012 to discuss the Wisconsin recall election and how it affected the stock market. On Tuesday, June 5 the State's Republican Governor Scott Walker defeated Democrat Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. The next day, the Dow Jones Industrial Averaged gained 165 points at the market's open and saw even more gains as the day progressed.

Belesis, a strong proponent of the private sector and believer in small government, stated that the election's outcome reignited a fiscally conservative Republican base and "gave politicians all across the States the guts to fight these public unions."

Mr. Belesis appears regularly on broadcast media, including FOX Business News and CNBC, as a panelist and contributing guest on issues regarding finance and the economy as well as national politics. He serves as the Co-Chairman of the New York State Finance Committee for the Republican Party.
