This isn’t surprising.
Kamala Harris last night during the debate dodged questions on whether she and Joe Biden will be adding more seats to the high court if they are elected.
Vice President Mike Pence asked Harris numerous times to be clear whether she and Joe Biden would increase the number of Supreme Court seats if they win.
Instead of answering the Vice President’s questions, she told a story about how Abraham Lincoln didn’t nominate a supreme court judge before his re-election.
Kamala Harris' refusal to answer VP Pence, coupled with Joe Biden's unwillingness to comment on Packing the Supreme Court, shows Democrats have become a party of radicals, by radicals, and for radicals. || #IngrahamAngle #2020election #VPDebate pic.twitter.com/cFHkJlMj41

PENCE: Will you pack the Supreme Court?
PENCE: What — Will you pack it?
KAMALA: In 1864, Abe Lincoln…
PENCE: WILL YOU PACK THE COURT?
KAMALA: Trump did not appoint enough black judges
PENCE: PACK THE COURT?! TELL ME NOW!
MODERATOR: "Moving on…"

CBS News had these interesting details to add:
Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris repeatedly dodged questions Wednesday on whether she and Joe Biden support adding more seats to the high court, a proposal that has gained traction among progressives in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death last month.
During the sole vice presidential debate, Vice President Mike Pence pressed Harris numerous times to clarify whether she and her running mate would move to expand the number of Supreme Court seats from nine if they win the election in November and if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.
If Barrett, a federal appeals court judge, joins the Supreme Court, it would widen its conservative majority to 6-3. Some Democrats have advocated for the concept known as court packing to dilute the power of the conservative justices and restore balance to the high court.

MSN commented too:
Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris dodged a question during Wednesday night’s debate about whether she and Joe Biden would pack the Supreme Court with liberal judges if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed by the Senate.
When he was asked how President Trump would protect access to healthcare for people who have preexisting conditions, Vice President Mike Pence pivoted to ask Harris whether a Biden administration would break with tradition by adding more than nine justices to the Supreme Court “to get your way,” a move the Washington Examiner and YouGov found a plurality of voters oppose.
“I think the American people really deserve an answer, Sen. Harris. Are you and Joe Biden going to pack the court if Judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed?” Pence asked before outlining his defense for making a nomination to the Supreme Court during an election year, something Senate Republicans rejected during President Barack Obama’s final term.
Harris, however, completely sidestepped the question.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will:
Pack the Supreme Court
Ban your guns
Defund the Police
Prohibit gas-fueled cars
Raise your taxes
Pass the Green New Deal
Bow down to China
Remember this when you vote on November 3rd.#VPDebate

There’s no doubt in many people’s minds that Biden and Harris will pack the court if they are elected.
So, let’s show up to the polls this November and make sure that doesn’t happen.
