Biden will answer court-packing question ‘when the election is over’

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden again ducked questions Thursday about whether he would seek to add seats to the Supreme Court, telling reporters he would not address the issue until after the November 3 election.

They’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over,” Biden said in Arizona, where he was campaigning with his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris of California.

“Now, look, I know it’s a great question, and y’all — and I don’t blame you for asking it. But you know the moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that.”

Biden’s non-answer comes as President Donald Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate seek to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. If they succeed, the court would have a 6-3 conservative majority.
