A myriad of 2020 Democratic contenders are now openly considering the idea of expanding the Supreme Court should they become President, according to a Sunday Politico report.
Their ranks now include Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) along with former congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
The position, which once would have been seen as radical, is a clear reflection of the fury liberals feel at Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) scheme to withhold a Supreme Court seat from President Barack Obama (and Merrick Garland), and subsequent success in packing the courts of all levels.
