Anti-Socialist Takes On The Ruling Class

A regular stands against BigGov 'spreading the wealth around'
Joe the Plumber is plunging into politics because he thinks it’s about time America had a few mechanics, bricklayers and, yes, plumbers in Congress.

Samuel “Joe” Wurzelbacher was thrust into the political spotlight after questioning Barack Obama about his economic policies during the 2008 presidential campaign. He officially launched his campaign for Congress in Ohio on Tuesday night.

Wurzelbacher said he’s running as a Republican in Ohio’s 9th U.S. House district, a seat now held by Marcy Kaptur, the longest-serving Democratic woman in the House. She’s expected to face a primary challenge from Rep. Dennis Kucinich after Ohio’s redrawn congressional map combined their two districts into one that appears heavily tilted toward Democrats.

Wurzelbacher has become an icon for many anti-establishment conservatives and has traveled the country speaking at tea party rallies and conservative gatherings since becoming a household name.

“Americans deserve all kinds of people representing them,” he said. “Not just an elite, ruling class.”
