Recently, Americans were outraged when Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled to strike Trump from the state’s ballots.
Republicans called it election interference. Democrats feared it would backfire and only help the former president.
But numerous attempts by anti-Trump forces are suing in other states. One critical swing state’s highest court ruled on the very same issue. And this is what they decided.
From The Post Millennial:
On Wednesday, the Michigan Supreme Court rejected an appeal in the case of removing 2024 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump from the state’s ballot through the 14th Amendment.
The court upheld a Michigan Court of Appeals ruling from earlier in the month, which rejected a similar appeal filed by watchdog group Free Speech For People on behalf of Michigan voters seeking to remove Trump from the ballot for the events of January 6, 2021, according to ABC News.
A group of activists tried to remove Trump from Michigan ballots. Using the same argument, this group claimed Trump was disqualified to run for office, accusing him of “insurrection” on January 6th, 2021.
Lower state courts had already rejected this attempt. But “Free Speech for People” appealed all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court. As in many other cases, the court ruled that Trump could stay on the ballot.
Trump has not been convicted of insurrection. Attempts to keep him off the ballot would make him innocent until proven guilty. Despite this, the liberal-leaning Colorado Supreme Court decided Trump was guilty and struck him off the ballot.
The former president celebrated the news on social media.
From TRUTH Social:
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. This pathetic gambit to rig the Election has failed all across the Country, including in States that have historically leaned heavily toward the Democrats. Colorado is the only State to have fallen prey to the scheme.
The outrage that resulted from that ruling has appeared only to help Trump. It is likely that people who would have otherwise not supported the former president now are. And Democrat strategists fear this ruling would make out Biden to be something of a dictator, protecting his election chances by keeping his rival off the ballots.
