A leading gun rights advocate announced it endorsed the Ohio man who became known as Joe the Plumber in his race to represent Ohios 9th Congressional District in Washington.
Im excited and all the same time, incredibly humbled by the announcement we have received an enthusiastic and strong endorsement of the Gun Owners of America, said Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, who earned the moniker in 2008 when he confronted then-candidate Barack Obama about how Obamas tax policies would discourage him from buying a plumbing business.
As an avid sportsman and gun owner, I can tell you with great pride that no one in Congress will defend the Right to Bear Arms more passionately than I will, said Wurzelbacher, who is running against Rep. Marcia C. Kaptur (D.-Ohio), a 14-term incumbent.
The Gun Owners of America said of my opponent, Kaptur has been an enemy of gun owners for nearly three decades. Its time to throw her out! he said.
I am thrilled to have the support of the Gun Owners of America, and I look forward to working with them in the United States Congress, said Wurzelbacher, who was a plumber in the Air Force, before becoming an information technology specialist. After his divorce, he returned to plumbing because he had custody of his son and needed to work closer to home.

If you live in the area and would like to help out or have a few $ to spare. Here is the link.
Of course they’re not helping him. They’re too busy dumping money into the race of the Socialist poof in MA, Richard Tisei.
Go for it Joe.
I have already voted for Mr. Wurtzelburgher, but the likely hood of his being elected is very small.
If this isn’t the Americana of old, I don’t know what is. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington...yes, GO,JOE,GO!
I hope he is elected. It would be a slap in the face for all the leftist operatives working in municipal offices who illegally used their jobs to look up information on him and sell it to the media to attempt to “get” him for speaking up to the Anointed One.
That’s what happens in this once-great country: speak up and they harass you, audit you, and try to destroy you.
And the gun controlists endorse “joe the Douchebag” for VP.
