Wexler loves Joe the Plumber



U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, whose district has more Jews than any other in the country, tells Buzz he was thrilled to see Joe the Plumber declare that Barack Obama would be bad for Israel.

""When Joe the Plumber starts opining on behalf of John McCain on Israel policy we went up another three or four points in south Florida. I hope he keeps doing it," said Wexler, the co-chairman of Obama's Florida campaign.

His take on the state of the race in Fla: "We are hitting our peak in Florida just at the right time. It's a close election, it's never a runaway. But we're going to win because we are doing phenomenally well on the I-4 corridor and where we are gelling and peaking at just the right time in south Florida."
