During MSNBC's election coverage Tuesday night, political analyst and Democratic strategist James Carville tried to reassure voters that despite President 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," Carville said.
Echoing Carville's sentiments, Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President 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 prepares to wait it out for the results,
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," said 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," Carville said.
