Samuel 'Joe the Plumber' Wurzelbacher, who is running for Congress in Ohio, said recently that the U.S. should “put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting" (video below).

Wurzelbacher made the statement during a rally for Arizona Republican state Rep. Lori Klein on Friday, according to Prescott eNews.

Wurzelbacher said: “For years I’ve said, you know, put a damn fence on the border, going to Mexico, and start shooting."

Appearing with Klein on Saturday, Wurzelbacher said: “I’m running for Congress. How many congressmen or people running for Congress have you heard, put a fence up and start shooting? None? Well you heard it here first. Put troops on the border and start shooting, I bet that solves our immigration problem real quick.”

Klein refused to condemn the call for border shooting, but her opponent Republican state House Speaker Andy Tobin told KTVK-TV:  “I would ask for him to retract the statement as made in jest, and if not made in jest, I’m appalled at him. We don’t do that in Arizona."
