Judge Rejects Effort To Kick Trump Off Ballot In Colorado Under 14th Amendment

(DailyWire.com) – A judge in Colorado has rejected a challenge filed by a Left-leaning group to remove former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 presidential primary ballot under the 14th Amendment.
On Friday, Colorado Judge Sarah B. Wallace ruled that Trump could not be kicked off the ballot in the state because the insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment did not apply to the presidency. The challenge in Colorado was filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington on behalf of six Colorado voters.
“Part of the court’s decision is its reluctance to embrace an interpretation which would disqualify a presidential candidate without a clear, unmistakable indication that such is the intent of Section 3,” Wallace wrote. The ruling comes after similar efforts to block Trump from appearing on state ballots failed in Michigan and Minnesota.
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung said that the ruling was another nail in the coffin for the efforts to make Trump ineligible to run for office.
“We applaud today’s ruling in Colorado, which is another nail in the coffin of the un-American ballot challenges,” Cheung said. “These cases represent the most cynical and blatant political attempts to interfere with the upcoming presidential election by desperate Democrats who know Crooked Joe Biden is a failed president on the fast track to defeat.”…
