Speaking with Vox, Carville bemoaned Democrats raising eyepopping amounts of money for media darling candidates like Amy McGrath in Kentucky and Jaime Harrison in South Carolina in 2020, only for them both to lose by double-digits in the red states.
“They were always going to lose those races, but Democrats keep doing this stupid s—,” Carville said. “They’re too damn emotional. Democrats obsess over high-profile races they can’t win because that’s where all the attention is. We’re addicted to hopeless causes.
“What about the secretary of state in Wisconsin? Or the attorney general race in Michigan? How much money are Democrats and progressives around the country sending to those candidates? I’m telling you, if Democrats are worried about voting rights and election integrity, then these are the sorts of races they should support and volunteer for, because this is where the action is and this is where things will be decided.”
