Rhode Island Federal Court Dismisses Latest Ballot Challenge

“Earlier today, a federal judge in Rhode Island dismissed yet another frivolous 14th Amendment challenge to President Trump’s ballot eligibility in 2024. Courts in Colorado, New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Michigan have all dismissed similar claims by political actors seeking to interfere with the presidential election and help the failing campaign of Crooked Joe Biden. President Trump remains undefeated in beating back these spurious claims.

“The American People have the unassailable right to vote for the candidate of their choosing at the ballot box, something the Democrats and their allies driving these cases clearly disagree with. President Trump believes the American voters, not the courts, should decide who wins next year’s elections and we urge a swift dismissal of all such remaining bogus ballot challenges.”

— Steven Cheung, Trump spokesperson



Precedent Is Set, President Trump Is Undefeated Against 14th Amendment Claims

Colorado State Court Ruled In Trump’s Favor, Placing Him On The 2024 Ballot. “Former President Donald Trump’s name will remain on the Colorado 2024 presidential primary ballot, a judge ruled Friday. ‘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,’ U.S. District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace wrote in her ruling.” (Fox News, 11/17/23)

To Date, Every 14th Amendment Ballot Challenge Has Met The Same Fate: Dismissal. “So far, however, none of the attempts to get Trump removed from a ballot have been successful. The Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit seeking to block Trump’s candidacy this week. Courts also swatted down a similar move in New Hampshire.” (Fox News, 11/15/23)

State Court In Michigan Dismissed 3 14th Amendment Ballot Challenges Brought By A Democrat Front Group. “A state judge in Michigan partly rejected an effort to disqualify former President Donald J. Trump from running for president in the state, ruling that Mr. Trump will remain on the ballot in the Republican primary and that the state’s top elections official does not have the authority alone to exclude him from the ballot.” (New York Times, 11/14/23)

Earlier Cases In Minnesota And New Hampshire Have Also Been Dismissed. “Disqualification efforts have also been rejected in other states. The Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed a similar petition last week. And a case in New Hampshire was also dismissed last month.” (New York Times, 11/14/23)
