Democrat Wendy Reed is tilting at one of the biggest windmills in American politics this election season.

She's attempting to unseat House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield and spoke to Off the Press co-hosts Russell Johnson and James Burger on Sept. 14.

The Lancaster-Palmdale resident has done everything from running a kids party business to working as a legal secretary. Now she runs a habitat conservation agency in the area.
