GOP Governor Is Now Trying To Push Biden Off the Ballot

( – The Colorado Supreme Court recently ruled 4-3 that former President Donald Trump cannot appear on its state’s primary ballot in 2024. The justices determined that he disqualified himself to run again under the Insurrection Clause, or Section Three of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The move sparked fury among MAGA conservatives, some of whom have vowed to strike back by barring President Joe Biden from red state ballots.

Newsweek reports that Trump will be appealing the ruling, which will take the case to the US Supreme Court. Campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung called the decision “flawed” and painted it as another desperate move by Democrats to get Trump out of the way amid their own tanking approval ratings.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said Republicans should remove Biden on the grounds that he allowed so many migrants to enter Texas on his watch. Trump reportedly expressed similar thoughts on his Truth Social account.

Kellyanne Conway, a former Trump White House senior counselor, asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) during a recent interview for Fox News whether the leader could remove Biden’s name from her state’s ballot on the grounds that he violated the 14th Amendment. The conservative anchor felt that the president’s recent handling of Iran, which involved a prisoner swap and the US unfreezing foreign assets, gave terrorists an open door at the US southern border, creating an unforgivable offense. Noem replied that she didn’t think she had that authority.

A Denver trial court determined in November that Trump engaged in insurrection through incitement on January 6, 2021. Denver District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace agreed that the former president did “engage in insurrection,” but she argued that the Insurrection Act might not apply to the presidency and put his name back on the ballot. The case then went to the Colorado Supreme Court.

A total of 25 states have filed challenges to Trump’s candidacy according to CBS News.
