On MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” on Sunday, Democratic strategist James Carville sounded the alarm about the upcoming midterm elections.
After sharing how ‘petrified’ and ‘mortified’ he was heading into the midterm elections, Carville said that ‘if this country doesn’t have election intervention’, then he was ‘not optimistic. about its future.
“I am not a quiet voice. I’m petrified,” Carville told host Al Sharpton. “And I will echo what my friend Congressman Clyburn said – if this country doesn’t have electoral intervention, I’m not optimistic about its future.”
“What if people, and especially young people, if they care about this country – and as you know; you were once a young person at the forefront of the civil rights movement – if they don’t grasp that and do something, I’m mortified,” he continued. “And I totally endorse Clyburn’s election intervention strategy, but I’m not a voice of confidence at all. I’m very scared right now.”
Carville also indicated that President Joe Biden and Democrats would do more to help black and brown Americans deal with record high gas and food prices than Republicans.
