Supreme Court Makes Landmark Decision On Trump 2024 Ballot Access

Supreme Court

The Supreme Court ruled this morning that former President Donald Trump will remain on the 2024 Presidential ballot in the State of Colorado, a decision that was reportedly 9-0, with not a single Judge voting in favor of removing Trump from the 2024 ballot.

The Colorado Supreme Court had ruled that Trump was not eligible to appear on the 2024 Presidential ballot after they deemed that he had worked to overturn the 2020 Election. The Supreme Court has reversed that decision, handing Trump and his campaign a massive legal victory.

This decision will also have implications on several other states, including Maine and Illinois, which have also started proceedings to remove the former President from the 2024 ballot. Those proceedings were pending appeal from the Trump legal team.

The decision from the Supreme Court this morning means that Trump will not be removed from the ballot in any of the States currently attempting to remove him. NBC News reports,

The Supreme Court on Monday overturned a Colorado court ruling that said former President Donald Trump was ineligible to run for office again because of his actions leading up to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol — bringing a swift end to a case with huge implications for the 2024 election.

The court in an unsigned ruling with no dissentsreversed the Colorado Supreme Court, which determined that Trump could not serve again as president under section 3 of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

The court said the Colorado Supreme Court had wrongly assumed that states can determine whether a presidential candidate is ineligible under a provision of the Constitution’s 14th Amendment.

The ruling makes it clear that Congress, not states, has to set rules on how the 14th Amendment provision can be enforced. As such the decision applies to all states, not just Colorado.

“Because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the states, responsible for enforcing section 3 against all federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse,” the ruling said.

Almost nobody predicted that the decision would be 9-0. The ruling makes it clear that it is Congress, not the States which have the power to remove somebody from the ballot.
