"Joe The Plumber", who was highlighted during the 2008 presidential campaign, has filed papers to run for Congress in Ohio.
Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher's candidacy has been notified of the ninth Congress, Ohio District - the seat abruptly changed reorganization that long Democrat Dennis Kucinich and Marcy Kaptur of primary health care. Wurzelbacher Republican filed to run.
Wurzelbacher, as a plumbing contractor employee, spoke with Barack Obama, the candidate has met with residents in his Holland, Ohio neighborhood. Wurzelbacher suggested that Obama's tax plan would mean higher taxes for him.
Republican candidate Sen. John McCain has grabbed the exchange, and repeatedly referred to the man dubbed "Joe the plumber" in his last debate against Obama.
The Arizona senator raised Wurzelbacher as a symbol of what might happen to the middle class if the Democrat won the White House. This led to a scrutiny of Wurzelbacher, who do not have a plumber's license and who later said McCain "screwed up my life."
