Democratic political consultant James Carville warned Democrats to expect a tough presidential race in a fundraising email entitled “nightmare” that he wrote on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Mr. Carville, a television pundit and key strategist on President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign blamed his nightmare scenario on a “plot to buy the election” enacted by the Koch brothers, “big-oil” billionaires and Republican super PACs.

“I want to tell you that President Obama has a second term in the bag. I want to tell you that the Koch Brothers are giving up their plot to buy the election,” Mr. Carville wrote. “But here’s where things really stand: We’re gonna have to go through hell and high-water to win this damn thing It’s gonna be hard. Every big-oil billionaire and Republican Super PAC is throwing the kitchen sink at President Obama.”

Mr. Carville also warned Democrats “if we don’t fight back, it’ll be over long before November” and promised that “every dollar” raised will “go straight to the front lines” to “back up President Obama with a Democratic majority” as well as “organizers on the ground and ads on the air hitting Republicans.”

 James Carville: Democrats Will Have To Go Through Hell And High Water To Win The Election

I wish I had good news for you.

I want to tell you that President Obama has a second term in the bag. I want to tell you that the Koch Brothers are giving up their plot to buy the election.

But here’s where things really stand: We’re gonna have to go through hell and high-water to win this damn thing. It’s gonna be hard. Every big-oil billionaire and Republican Super PAC is throwing the kitchen sink at President Obama.

If we don’t fight back, it’ll be over long before November.
