(CNN) - Democratic strategists James Carville and Paul Begala categorically denied a FOX News report Tuesday that they would be joining Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign after the New Hampshire primary.
"It is patently false,” Carville told CNN Tuesday. “Whoever is telling you that has no idea what they are talking about. I have not spoken to anyone in the Clinton campaign about any role, any position anything at all."
"I am a maxed-out contributor, and I sympathize with her, and I have friends there with whom I talk from time to time, but I have no role."
Carville added that he does speak with former President Clinton from time to time.
Begala also categorically denied any kind of formal or informal role with the Clinton campaign.
Carville and Begala held key positions in former President Bill Clinton's back-to-back presidential victories in the 1990's.
FOX News reported that the pair would join the campaign as senior political and communications strategists, supplanting but not replacing the current team of senior advisor Mark Penn and campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle.
Both Carville and Begala are CNN contributors.
