Longtime Democratic political consultant James Carville pulled no punches together with his searing assessment of the GOP field of those he described as “very low-quality candidates” within the 2022 midterm elections.
“They’ve a variety of silly those who vote of their primaries. They really do. I’m not likely alleged to say that nevertheless it’s obvious fact. And , when silly people vote, who they nominate? Other silly people,” Carville said of Republicans on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The eleventh Hour.”
Carville’s comments got here during a discussion with anchor Ayman Mohyeldin concerning the fresh controversy surrounding former football star and Georgia GOP U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker, who this week was accused of paying for an abortion for a then-girlfriend in 2009. Walker is running a staunch “pro-life” campaign.
Other Republicans running for office this November who drew Carville’s ire included Doug Mastriano, the Donald Trump-backed nominee for governor of Pennsylvania, and U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters in Arizona.
The GOP’s problem is the “very low-quality those who vote of their primaries” are “producing predictably very low-quality candidates,” Carville reiterated. “It’s evident right in front of you.”
