It was published in the Wall Street Journal, so pretty much, yeah.

remember to SuPPoRT tHE nOmiNEe

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/md ... story.html

Maryland gubernatorial nominee Ben Jealous needs all the help he can get to unseat incumbent Gov. Larry Hogan (R), but he’s facing resistance from some fellow Democrats uneasy with his left-wing platform.

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett is declining to endorse Jealous for now because of concerns that Jealous’s positions on taxes, school funding and Amazon.com’s second headquarters would penalize Leggett’s constituents in the state’s most populous jurisdiction.

Long-serving Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert), an influential moderate, offered only tepid backing for Jealous while praising Hogan for “governing from the middle.”

There's been some talk recently about fixing the balance of the supreme court by 'packing', legislating a significant increase in size and filling the new slots with liberal justices. Seems like something you might want to discuss after being elected, since it gives the incumbent party some very obvious ammunition to use against you, and might inspire them to do it first, 'fixing the balance' in a very different direction.

I'm not aware of any Democrats who are actually current or prospective officeholders advocating for stacking the court. It's not as if the party is known for taking policy cues from Jacobin.
