'Joe the plumber' considering a run for Congress

Washington, Thu, 25 Aug 2011 ANI

Washington, August 25 (ANI): Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, the Ohio resident who came into prominence during the 2008 presidential cycle as 'Joe the Plumber' is now considering a run for Congress.


Wurzelbacher is looking to challenge longtime Democrat, Marcy Kaptur, who represents Ohio's 9th Congressional District.


"We are encouraging Joe to run," Jon Stainbrook, chairman of the Lucas County Republican Party was quoted, as saying by CBS News.


Wurzelbacher won one of nearly 400 seats on the Republican Party committee for northwest Ohio's Lucas County last May.


Wurzelbacher said he was preparing for a run and it was an 'interesting idea'. I think it is a very interesting idea. That is as much as I can say," Wurzelbacher was quoted, as saying.


Wurzelbacher was thrust into the spotlight after a chance meeting with Obama outside his house near Toledo and then when Republican presidential candidate John McCain repeatedly cited 'Joe the Plumber' in a debate.


Wurzelbacher later campaigned with McCain and his running mate, Sarah Palin. He also wrote a book, spoke at conservative gatherings and has worked with a veterans' organization in Alaska that provides outdoor programs for wounded soldiers. (ANI)
