Former Bill Clinton strategist James Carville has said he is “petrified” about the Democrats’ prospects ahead of the looming November midterm elections.
Carville, a top Democratic Party adviser, appeared Sunday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” to discuss the midterms.
While sounding the alarm about the Democrats’ impending doom, Carville called for “a voter intervention.”
After sharing how “petrified” and “mortified” he is heading into the midterms, Carville told host Al Sharpton that “if this country does not have a voter intervention,” then he was “not optimistic about its future.”
“I am not a voice of calm. I’m petrified,” Carville revealed.
“And I will echo what my friend Congressman Clyburn said — if this country does not have voter intervention, I am not optimistic about its future.
“And if people, and particularly young people, if they care any about this country — and as you know; you were once a young person one time on the forefront of the civil rights movement — if they don’t get a hold of this and do something, I am mortified,” he continued.
“And I wholly endorse the Clyburn strategy of voter intervention, but I am not a voice of confidence at all. I am very afraid right now.”
Carville also advised that President Joe Biden and the Democrats do more to help the black and brown people in America deal with record-high gas and food prices than the Republicans would.
