Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (R-AK), left, speaks as she sets the stage of Joe Wurzelbacher, right, of Toledo, Ohio, during a rally on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Wurzelbacher, known as "Joe the Plumber", gained national attention after questioning Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on his small business tax policy. He would later become a voice for conservative values and run as a Republican candidate for Ohio's 9th congressional district. Enoch Wu | The BG News (BG Falcon Media)
