There are no shortage of dirty tricks in American politics, but the latest suggestion by a long-time Democratic strategist may very well go beyond the pale.
James Carville, the left-leaning “ragin’ Cajun”, is now suggesting that Democrat could stealthily support some of the GOP’s more outrageous candidates, hoping that their success would somehow undermine the work of the party as a whole.
Democratic strategist James Carville pushed back on Saturday against CNN’s Jim Acosta over concerns about Democrat interference in Republican primaries.
Acosta questioned the ongoing strategy of Democrat groups boosting “extremist Republicans” during the primaries to ensure their presence in the midterm elections.
“This has been something that’s been talked about quite a bit in Democratic circles as to whether or not this is good idea. We’ve seen efforts by Democratic campaigns and outside groups to tilt the playing field in their favor by propping up extremist Republican candidates in some of these very critical races around the country, the idea that it would make it easier for Democrats to win,” Acosta said.
Carville would go on to admit that it was a risky proposition.
“But on the flip side,” he warned. “If the vote doesn’t go their way, you could end up with conspiracy theorists, election deniers and so on in some pretty important places.”
Carville is no stranger to controversy, of course, having repeatedly angered members of his own party by suggesting that the left’s turn toward “wokeism” has run counter to the will of the American people.
