Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) agreed that he is open to the highly controversial idea of packing the Supreme Court if Joe Biden wins the election in November.
The Biden campaign surrogate gave the indication while interviewing with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday.
“If we happen to be in a fact pattern where we have a President Biden, we’ll have to look at what the right steps are to rebalance our federal judiciary,” Sen Coons said.
Jake Tapper followed up by asking, “So your mind is open to adding justices to the Supreme Court? Yes or no?”
“Yes,” Coons replied. Video Below
