Sorry I got so excited that they were asked about courts I hit send with no context. The Q was, would you support a plan to add justices to SCOTUS to protect Roe v. Wade:
- Biden: No, would focus on nominees committed to the right to privacy re: abortion
- Buttigieg: Open to adding justices, need to depoliticize the court, open to various reform ideas
- Castro: Not adding justices, open to other reform ideas like term limits or having judges cycle in from the appeals courts
- Warren: Didn't directly answer the Q about adding justices ("there are a number of options"), pivots to talking more generally about the need to protect women's right to choose
The focus on the courts was short-lived, alas. Four candidates got a chance to answer the question about SCOTUS reform (Biden, Buttigieg, Castro, Warren) before the moderators moved on.

On the left's struggle to make courts a breakthrough issue in 2020: buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
