Wilhelm was the Iowa campaign manager for Joe Biden’s 1988 run for the White House.  Wilhelm met Degee Dodds of Danville, Iowa, during that ’88 Iowa campaign and the two married.  Wilhelm’s father-in-law was a former state representative from southeast Iowa, a minister who served as the chaplain for Burlington’s minor league baseball team.  One former Burlington resident, Ron Parker, describes Wilhelm’s father-in-law as a "delightful guy."
