BREAKING: Colorado Supreme Court disqualifies Trump from appearing on state’s primary ballot
By Arsenio Toledo // Dec 19, 2023

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday, Dec. 19, that former President Donald Trump cannot appear on the state's 2024 presidential primary ballot.

By a vote of four in favor and three against, the Colorado Supreme Court argued that Trump's ineligibility comes from the Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the Unite States Constitution, also known as the insurrection clause. (Related: Democrats DESPERATELY looking for ways to prevent Trump from appearing on the ballot.)

This overturns a prior ruling from a district court judge who found that Trump incited an insurrection during the so-called attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, but said that Trump could not be barred from the ballot because it was unclear whether the insurrection clause was intended to cover anybody running for president.

"A majority of the court holds that President Trump is disqualified from holding the office of President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution," reads the court ruling. "Because he is disqualified, it would be a wrongful act under the Electoral Code for the Colorado Secretary of State to list him as a candidate on the presidential primary ballot."

This means that Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold is barred from listing Trump's name on the state's Republican presidential primary. Write-in votes cast for Trump will also be rejected.

"We do not reach these conclusions lightly," wrote the court's majority. "We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us. We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach."

Trump to appeal decision before Supreme Court

Alina Habba, Trump's personal lawyer, called the ruling an attack on "the very heart of this nation's democracy." She and Trump's other lawyers have promised to appeal any disqualification immediately to the Supreme Court, which has the final say on all constitutional matters.

"It will not stand, and we trust that the Supreme Court will reverse this unconstitutional order," added Habba.

Trump has personally called the efforts to keep him off the ballot "nonsense" and "election interference." In his campaign's latest fundraising email, he called the ruling as "tyrannical."

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel similarly called the decision "election interference," and said that the committee's legal team intends to provide all of the assistance Trump needs to fight the ruling.

The Colorado Supreme Court's ruling also stands in contrast with the Minnesota Supreme Court, which last month declared that the state's political parties can put anyone they want on their primary ballots.

This also stands in contrast with a 14th Amendment case in Michigan, wherein a judge ruled that Congress, not the judiciary, should decide whether Trump can stay on the ballot. The liberal advocacy group behind both the Minnesota and Michigan cases, Free Speech For People, has also filed another lawsuit in Oregon seeking to prevent Trump from appearing on the primary ballot there.
