In one of two battleground runoff elections occurring in Georgia, Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock refused to take a stance on expanding the size of the Supreme Court when pressed on the issue, yet again. Previously, Warnock said that questions about “court packing” were equivalent to sowing division.
In a debate with incumbent GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler on Sunday night, Warnock dodged the question two separate times, claiming that he is "not focused" on the potential for packing the high court.
This is one of the most ridiculous deflections I've seen in politics...— Nathan Brand (@NathanBrandWA) December 7, 2020

Great question from @bluestein to @ReverendWarnock on packing the courts.— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) December 7, 2020
He refuses to answer, says "he's not hearing from Georgians about that."
"He's not focused on it."
THAT is going to be a problem. #GApol
After declining to take a stance on expanding the size of the Supreme Court, Warnock went on to refuse to denounce Marxist ideology. Senator Loeffler challenged her opponent to reject Marxism and socialism, after previously offering support for leaders who embrace those ideologies, but he would not.

Senator Loeffler has labeled Warnock as “too radical” for Georgia as the control of the Senate hinges on Georgia’s runoff elections.
