Sorry Joe, but another attempt to thwart Trump’s presidential comeback has failed. On Friday, a judge ruled that Donald Trump’s name will remain on the Colorado 2024 Republican primary ballot.
“The court orders the Secretary of State to place Donald J. Trump on the presidential primary ballot when it certifies the ballot on January 5, 2024,” ruled U.S. District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace.
A left-wing watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and six Colorado voters sought to disqualify Trump from the ballot based using Disqualifications Clause of the 14th Amendment, which states that anyone who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof” can’t hold federal office. The lawsuit falsely alleged that Trump was involved in the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
Similar efforts to block Trump from the ballot in New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Michigan have also failed.
The Trump campaign applauded the ruling.
“We applaud today’s ruling in Colorado, which is another nail in the coffin of the un-American ballot challenges. With this decision, Democrats’ 14th Amendment challenges have now been defeated in Colorado,
