We invited Klain on the show, and he fielded some hard questions while making an expansive case that Biden still has a path.

    The Daily Blast: Surprise: Biden Is Suddenly Close to Defeating the Push to Oust Him

    Although the Democratic Party remains mired in infighting over President Biden’s disastrous debate performance, congressional Democrats now appear increasingly convinced that he will survive as the nominee.
