First, Dana Bash speaks exclusively with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries about Democrats' strategy for navigating a divided Congress, as well as President Biden's surprise announcement that he won't block a GOP bill to override a controversial DC crime law.

Next, many blame Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot's reelection loss this week on crime concerns. Are Democrats vulnerable on crime? Dana discusses the issue with New York City Mayor Eric Adams. 

Plus, some Republican 2024 presidential hopefuls are seeking a lane around former President Trump. Will it be harder than they think? Former Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson shares his thoughts. 

Finally, our panel reacts to today's announcement by former Maryland Governor Larry Hogan that he won't run for president in 2024.
