‘Joe the Plumber’ in 2010?
Posted on Oct 25, 2008
Life took an unexpected turn for Joe Wurzelbacher, or “Joe the Plumber,” when he became a kind of human talking point for John McCain and Barack Obama during their last debate, and now Wurzelbacher has apparently taken a shine to politics.
The Hill’s Blog Briefing Room:
Joe Wurzelbacher, a.k.a. “Joe the Plumber,” said Friday he may consider running for Congress in 2010, challenging longtime Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D) in the Toledo-area district.
“I’ll tell you what, we’d definitely be in one heck of a fight,” Wurzelbacher said during an appearance on the Laura Ingraham show Friday, “but, you know, I’d be up for it.”
