Jeff Jackson Continues to Duck Court Packing Question as Liberal Erica Smith Stands Firm

Press Release:

    Washington, D.C.     This month, Democrats went all-in on court packing, unveiling a plan to expand the Supreme Court and pack it with liberal, activist judges.

    Vetting judges for the Supreme Court is one of the Senate's most solemn obligations, so it's no surprise that North Carolinians demand to know where those vying for their vote stand on this issue.

    Former State Senator Erica Smith has been unequivocal in her support for the radical plan. State Senator Jeff Jackson? Not so much.

    Jeff Jackson is going all-in on his moniker "Cal Jr." and asking himself "What would Cal Cunningham do?" The answer to that question is simple: dodge the tough question!

    Statement from NRSC Spokesman T.W. Arrighi: "Erica Smith is a radical liberal and proud of it while Cal Jr. is a career politician with no backbone. On one of the most consequential proposals made by Democrats, that will directly impact the U.S. Senate and our country in a major way, Jeff Jackson has no answer. We've come to expect this sort of behavior from him, but it never becomes less shocking."
