Former presidential candidate Herman Cain will join Republican Congressional Candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds at 8:30 p.m. this Friday, Feb. 24. Wurzelbacher became an overnight sensation during the 2008 presidential election when he challenged then-candidate Barak Obama about his tax proposals. Actually it was Obama’s answer, “wouldn’t you like to see the money spread around?” that created most of the furor.
Cain became a popular candidate as recently as December pushing his “9-9-9” plan. He is still a promoter of that tax concept and will speak to it when he appears with Wurzelbacher this Friday at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds Banquet Facility. The event is free and open to the public.
Cain and Wurzelbacher will be appearing at the Lucas County Lincoln Day Dinner earlier in the evening. The event is being hosted by “Joe the Plumber” supporters and area Tea Party members throughout Ottawa County. Wurzelbacher will be running for the 9th District Congressional seat against the winner of the primary election battle between a pair of incumbent Democrats: Marcy Kaptur and Dennis Kucinich.
