McCain talks up 'Joe the Plumber' in central Florida

It looks as if John McCain wants to win the crucial battleground of central Florida by corralling as many "Joe the Plumbers" as he can. McCain began a "Joe the Plumber" bus tour Thursday with a stop in this north-central beach community and released an ad called "I Am Joe." In his stump speech, he kept repeating the idea that Democrat Barack Obama wants to "spread the wealth around."
