Democratic party operative James Carville said Republicans will literally "kill people to stay in power" when asked by MSNBC's Brian Williams if he still believes Joe Biden can win by doing nothing. Carville was referring to the decision by the Republican-controlled Wisconsin legislature to not delay the state's primary despite the coronavirus pandemic.
"You said a while back if Biden does nothing he wins. Is that still true?" Williams asked Carville on Wednesday.
"He's going to do something obviously," Carville responded. "That's a little poetic license. But I think he's in a he's going to do something obviously. That's a little poetic license. But I think he's in a commanding position but we've got to be careful about is mucking around with voting. They're going to try it. Trump -- all the Republicans admit it, we can't win if everybody votes."
"So my kind of mission here in the short term is to sound the alarm to say Mitch McConnell and the Supreme Court, they're going to do everything they can to hold on to power and Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer, we've got to dig in and make sure states have funding to conduct these elections and to put pressure on them to make sure they're done fairly. This thing in Wisconsin was one of the most awful things I've ever seen in my life. Just the extent they'll go to to hold on to power. It was all about one Supreme Court seat in Wisconsin. They will kill people to stay in power. Literally," Carville said.
