On MSNBC’s election night coverage Tuesday night, political analyst and Democratic strategist James Carville was full of optimism as he reassured the Democratic party that, despite President Donald Trump leading in many battleground states, everything was “going to be fine.”
“Every Democrat, just put the razor blades and the Ambien back in the medicine cabinet. We’re going to be fine,” stated Carville.
Carville went on saying that “Pennsylvania looks really good, we’re going to be fine in Wisconsin, I think a big surprise here is Georgia.”
Similar to Carville’s statement, former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made a statement after midnight saying, “we’re going to win this,” as it became clear that the presidential race was too close to call late Tuesday night. While the nation went to bed preparing to wait it out, possibly until Friday, Carville continued to express his optimism.
“I hoped that we would know earlier than we did. I think we’re going to be just fine. I’m very optimistic,” stated Carville. He continued, “People are rerunning the numbers, and we just have to hang in there, and we’re going to win this thing. I promise you. But just, you know, stay up the night, watch the returns. We’re doing a good job.”
“I do not have defeat on my mind. I have really good reasons to think that we’re going to be fine. I’ve talked to a lot of people tonight. It might take a little bit longer than we wanted, but everybody just hang in there. America’s coming back and I feel good about where we are,” assured Carville.
Finally, Carville told MSNBC’s Brian Williams and Rachel Maddow, “I’ve waited four years for this. I can wait another four days.”
MSNBC’s election night coverage aired Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. on MSNBC.
