Joe Wurzelbacher's campaign for Congerss released a new video Friday, this time with a neighbor who says she's a Wurzelbacher supporter and may have been the reason that Barack Obama stopped on Wurzelbacher's street in 2008.
The African-American woman, Georgia Rogers, who identifies herself as Mother Georgia, talks about knowing Wurzelbacher since he was 13 and observing him and her son and other boys in the Springfield Township neighborhood playing basketball.
"I voted for Obama but I would most certainly vote for Joe. And I'd like to see him and my friend Barack work together," she says in the video.
She said she campaigned for then-U.S. Senator Obama against Republican U.s. Sen. John McCain.
"In fact, I requested that they get someone out here in the neighborhood and the day after is when President Obama was in town and showed up in our neighborhood. And that's when my neighbor, my son's friend, Joe the Plumber, surfaced," Mother Georgia said.
She said he was not disrespectful with Obama, but was "just being human, asking a simple question."
Wurzelbacher, a plumber, got into a sidewalk debate with Obama when he made an unannounced stop to go door to door. In that discussion, about taxes, Obama said if you "spread the wealth around" it would be "good for everybody."
Wurzelbacher has made extensive use of videos in his campaign against U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D. Toledo) in Ohio's 9th Congressional District.
