Leaves Gore campaign

Aug 1999

Klain leaves the campaign to join the Washington office of L.A.-based O’Melveny & Myers as a partner. There have been rumors of a rift between him and campaign chairman Tony Coelho but by the time he leaves, the campaign is trying to convince him to stay. Klain:

Tony was doing everything humanly possible to try to get me to stay. ..’You reach a point in time when you need to do something else. My heart said stay, but my head told me to move on.
