Joe the Plumber wins primary, set to face Rep. Marcy Kaptur in November



Despite the fact that the Hill rate this a likely Democratic win, I think it’s great that Joe the Plumber has won and hopefully he can put up a valiant fight and get this Democrat out of Congress:

THE HILL – Samuel Wurzelbacher, or “Joe the Plumber,” as he became known during the 2008 presidential campaign, is one step closer to becoming a U.S. congressman.

Wurzelbacher won the Republican nomination for Ohio’s 9th district and will face off against Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) this fall. He won the primary by 51 percent to 49 over Steven Kraus.

The Hill rates this race a likely Democratic victory.
