SALT LAKE CITY -- Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher, also known as ‘Joe the Plumber' appeared at the Utah State Capitol Wednesday.
Wurzelbacher, emphasized he is an independent voter and an American who feels strongly that elected officials are public servants, and nothing more.
In Utah on behalf of Cherilyn Eagar, a Republican candidate challenging Senator Robert Bennett in 2010, Wurzelbacher said he did research on her before agreeing to speak on her behalf.
Statements about her were kept to about three minutes, however. He told the crowd his views on the responsibility of living in America, and of freedom, the importance of holding politicians responsible, and about the ways this nation has ‘lost it's way'.
