      The World's most infamous handyman may be ready to take on Northwest Ohio's most famous congresswoman.

      Samual "Joe" Wurzelbacher, who most of you know as "Joe The Plumber", may take a run for congress as a Republican against Democrat Marcy Kaptur next year.

      "The question is 'am I going to run or not?' and right now I'm exploring that opportunity." Wurzelbacher said.

      Wurzelbacher has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and has formed a congressional campaign comittee for Ohio's 9th Congressional District.

      "Joe The Plumber" was thrust into the national spotlight during the 2008 Presidential campaign when he criticized then candidate Obama during a stop in Northwest Ohio.

      After that, he campaigned for John McCain and Sarah Palin.
