California Rep. optimistic about Wisconsin's 8th District

Wisconsin conservatives might recognize the name Rep, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and not because of Tailgunner Joe: McCarthy was one of the Weekly Standard’s “Young Guns of the GOP” last year, along with Eric Cantor and our own Paul Ryan.

Newsbusters has a longer and better video of Luntz here.
