As Gov. Tim Walz's national profile rises, he's in the middle of discussions about Biden's future

The morning after the presidential debate, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz appeared on Fox News acknowledging President Joe Biden had a "bad night" while expressing confidence the president could still beat Donald Trump in November.

Days later, he helped facilitate a hastily scheduled meeting with Democratic governors and the White House to quell some of governors' concerns about how to message the president's shaky debate performance in their home states.

As Walz's national profile in Democratic circles continues to rise - and the party grapples with an existential question about whether the president should be the nominee - his role as both a Biden campaign surrogate and head of the Democratic Governors Association has put him in the middle of the conversations.
