During a interview, Democrat Raphael Warnock, who is now in a crucial Georgia Senate runoff challenging Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler did not directly answer a question on what his stance is on controversial issues such as court packing and statehood for DC & Puerto Rico.
Warnock instead deflected, replying “I think that they’re trying to divide us, again, and it’s really sad. Because, at the end of the day, E Pluribus Unum, out of many, one, that’s the covenant that we have with one another, as an American people. I support that. I believe in that with all of my heart. And I’m going to stand up and defend it.”
Asked a second time if he’d like to see the court expanded, Warnock replied “I’m really focused on representing the concerns of ordinary people here in Georgia. I think it’s presumptuous for me to go further down that path, talking about what ought to happen with the courts. I’m hopeful that the people of Georgia will look at my life, look at my record, and give me the great honor of representing them in the United States Senate.”
