WASHINGTON -- HuffPost's Zach Carter and Howard Fineman on Friday spoke with Joseph Wurzelbacher at the 2012 Conservative Political Action Conference.
Wurzelbacher is also known as "Joe the Plumber," a name he was dubbed during the 2008 presidential campaign when he was portrayed as a symbol of middle-class America.
CPAC is a major annual event for the conservative movement, and on Friday GOP presidential candidates Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich all addressed large crowds.
Yet Wurzelbacher told HuffPost he has no problem distinguishing himself.
"I don't have to try," he said. "My name is Joe Wurzelbacher. I'm going to speak the truth. And I don't have to remember what I said five years ago or three years from now because it'll always be the same thing -- because it's the truth."
Wurzelbacher is now running as a Republican candidate for Congress in the 9th District of Ohio.
