Michigan Supreme Court Rejects Removing Trump From Primary Ballot

The Michigan Supreme Court turned back an attempt by leftist radicals to strip former President Donald Trump from the 2024 presidential primary ballot.

The court on Wednesday revealed their decision to reject those efforts to disenfranchise Michigan voters. Justices wrote they were “not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by the court.”

This action followed the controversial move by the Democrat-appointed Colorado Supreme Court last week to bar Trump from that state’s primary ballots. Democrats hoped for a repeat performance in Michigan but were disappointed.

Similar efforts were rejected by courts in Arizona and Minnesota. Leftists base their arguments on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars those who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from holding office.

Trump, of course, has not been charged, tried or convicted of any such activities.

But Democrats circling the wagons around their deeply unpopular incumbent hope to convince enough states to keep him off the ballot to derail his candidacy. They succeeded in Colorado.

Justice Elizabeth Welch explained the ruling Wednesday. She wrote that “Colorado’s election laws differ from Michigan’s laws in a material way that is directly relevant to why the appellants in this case are not entitled to the relief they seek concerning the presidential primary election in Michigan.”

Welch explained that the appellants claimed political parties are state actors in the election process.

Democrats also based their arguments on the Colorado high court ruling that Trump engaged in “insurrection.”

The 45th president celebrated the victory on Truth Social. He noted “the Michigan Supreme Court has strongly and rightfully denied the Desperate Democrat attempt to take the leading Candidate in the 2024 Presidential Election, me, off the ballot in the Great State of Michigan.”

As for the Colorado decision, it is currently stayed as Trump plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The former president noted several victories against such efforts and that it is “the only state to have fallen prey to the scheme.”

The leftist outfit that filed the Michigan lawsuit noted the high court decision is not binding in any other state. Free Speech for People said it will “continue our current and planned legal actions in other states to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment against Donald Trump.”
