Democratic strategist James Carville has emphatically denied a Fox News report asserting that he is joining Hillary Clinton presidential campaign team.
A report filed midday Tuesday by Major Garrett on Fox stated: “It’s back to the future at Hillary Clinton’s campaign as some of the top advisers to former President Clinton are set to join Hillary’s faltering campaign as early as tomorrow.
“Senior Clinton sources tell Fox that Hillary intends to bring in as top day-to-day advisers James Carville and Paul Begala. The campaign could also add other strategists from Clinton’s presidential years, but Carville and Begala are the biggest names and are set to join the campaign after a post-New Hampshire strategy meeting tomorrow.”
But blogger Greg Sargent, writing on the site TPM Election Central, says that when he called Carville on his cell phone, Carville told him:
"Fox was, is and will continue to be an asinine and ignorant network. I have not spoken to anyone in the Clinton campaign about this. I have not done domestic political consulting since President Clinton was elected. I'm not getting back into domestic political consulting. If I do go back, it would be safe to say that I'm the biggest liar in America."
Asked if he knew if Begala would join Hillary’s team, Carville responded: "To the extent that I know anything, as of nine this morning, no he is not."
