James Carville weighs in on GOP primary run off

Carville is calling Mississippi’s GOP Senate primary runoff an election for the ages.

“If McDaniel wins I think the democrats are going to try to put up a fight and try to get the senate seat,” Carville said.

“I think the democrats are going to put up a real fight for him and I think that would be good for the state. It wouldn’t hurt to air it out and have a little competition here,” Carville said.

Carville also weighed in on Cochran saying the 76-year-old politician isn’t likely to change.

“I think Senator Cochran is a very well liked man for good reason, but he’s been there in Mississippi politics for over 40 years, I guess. And he’s going to campaign the way that he is and who he is. And has probably said to himself, ‘People are going to accept me or reject me based on who I am.'”
