Plumbers Unions Say It Ain't So for Joe

By Newsmax Wires   |   Wednesday, 12 Oct 2011 10:45 PM

Joe Wurzelbacher, whom Republican presidential nominee John McCain turned into “Joe the Plumber” during the 2008 campaign, is considering running for Congress. But plumbers unions apparently wouldn’t be a source of support, Politico reports.

The conservative Wurzelbacher has filed papers to run as a Republican in northern Ohio, though he hasn’t decided whether to do so yet.

The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry isn’t impressed. Union official Rick Terven told Politico, “As you know [Democratic Reps.] Dennis Kucinich and Marcy Kaptur are also considering this race and have stood by working families time and time again. In doing so, they both have earned the strong support of our members in Ohio. ‘Joe the Plumber’ may have played a part in the 2008 election story, but we know that the plumbers of the United Association and all other plumbers who care about working people will continue to support either Democratic nominee, not ‘Joe the Plumber.’”
