Congressman Kevin McCarthy weighs in on popular political TV show House of Cards
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – Congressman Kevin McCarthy is weighing in on a popular political TV show that has a lot of people buzzing about what really happens behind closed doors in Washington, D.C.
There’s talk that the main character in the hit series “House of Cards” is based on McCarthy, so 23ABC caught up with the congressman to find out if there is any truth to that.
“The only thing it’s based on is he’s the Majority Whip. I’m in the Majority Whip. It’s a much different reality from Hollywood,” said Congressman McCarthy.
A different reality, but one Kevin Spacey wanted to see for himself to help bring his character to life.
