Topic - Tom Sutton
He is a burly, outspoken, working man's icon, plucked from obscurity during the 2008 presidential election cycle when he was lauded by Republicans for taking on candidate Barack Obama. Four years later, the Ohio native is mounting his own Republican bid to unseat a 15-term incumbent Democratic congresswoman.
The Republican presidential brawl will not be the only fight on the ballot when voters in the swing state of Ohio head to the polls on Super Tuesday.
Mr. Sutton said, meaning that the underdog Mr. Wurzelbacher will find it difficult to attract the financial support he would need to be competitive.
"Certainly he has wide name recognition as 'Joe the Plumber,' but I think there is a difference between recognizing his name and voting for him," Mr. Sutton said. "I think it's nice that he says he's going to knock on every door in the 9th District, but that's physically impossible. The fact of a campaign is you are going to attract money from people who make a difference if they think you have a chance of winning. The folks that would give that kind of money, who would help him have a campaign that he can really build, are not there."
