How Experienced is Kevin McCarthy?

Philip Bump: “As John Boehner steps down from his position at the end of October, the man poised to replace him is Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California … By recent speaker standards, he’s practically a freshman.”

“The past 20 speakers have been in the House for an average of 8,492 days before being elected. Boehner had been in for 7,306. McCarthy will be at 3,223 — the least experience in the House since Georgia’s Charles Frederick Crisp in 1891.”
