Joe the P to Run for Congress
It's not definite yet, but Joe the Plumber may run for congress.
Mr. Wurzelbacher, however, has filed a "statement of candidacy" with the Federal Elections Commission to run as a Republican for that congressional seat. The filing, made last week, means a campaign committee can raise and spend funds on his behalf.
Mr. Wurzelbacher, 37, a Springfield Township resident, acknowledged that he does not live in the 9th Congressional District. "If I do anything, it would be in the 9th," Mr. Wurzelbacher said.
"I live in Ohio and that is what it comes down to. Legally, as long as you live in the state one year and are a registered voter, you can run anywhere you want."
