DES MOINES - Last week, Local 5's Sabrina Ahmed featured a Des Moines man named Kevin McCarthy who - because of his name and Twitter account - is being mistaken for the leading candidate to take over as speaker of the US House.

Now, Hillary Clinton's campaign is using the local Kevin McCarthy in their new online video ad "A Message from @KevinMcCarthy."
The YouTube video features the local McCarthy, who is a Clinton supporter, responding to confused Twitter followers who think they followed the Republican congressman from California. Congressman McCarthy is a regular critic of Clinton's service as Secretary of State.
The video above is a political campaign ad re-posted from the Hillary Clinton for America YouTube channel "The Briefing."
