Minnesota Supreme Court Dismisses Challenge To Keep Trump Off 2024 Ballot

The Minnesota Supreme Court has dismissed a lawsuit seeking to bar former President Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 primary ballot.

Left-wing group Free Speech For People argued that Trump violated the 14th Amendment during the Jan. 6th, 2020 Capitol riot.

The 14th Amendment disqualifies anyone from running for office who had previously taken an oath of office who then “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”

The Daily Wire has more:

“There is no state statute that prohibits a major political party from placing on the presidential nomination primary ballot, or sending delegates to the national convention supporting, a candidate who is ineligible to hold office,” Chief Justice Natalie Hudson ruled.

However, the court’s ruling only applies to the state’s primary ballot and left open the possibility that the plaintiffs could make another attempt to block Trump from appearing on the general election ballot in November 2024.

Trump celebrated the ruling in a series of Truth Social posts on Wednesday.

“Ridiculous 14th Amendment lawsuit just thrown out by Minnesota Supreme Court,” Trump said. “Congratulations to all who fought this HOAX!”

In response to the ruling, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said in part: “Today’s decision in Minnesota, like New Hampshire before it, is further validation of the Trump Campaign’s consistent argument that the 14th Amendment ballot challenges are nothing more than strategic, un-Constitutional attempts to interfere with the election by desperate Democrats who see the writing on the wall: President Trump is dominating the polls and has never been in a stronger position to end the failed Biden presidency next November.”

  1. Forget this noise. Vivek stated the Republican election problems and the solution. Rhona McDaniel, Mitt Romney’s niece, has got to go as Chair of the RNC. Vivek knows high tech and would get the message out to our dumb downed young voter. Appoint him head of 2024 National RNC election campaign. High tech messaging, coordinating early voter turnout, use high tech to monitor, prevent, prosecute voter harvesting by urban democrat thugs.

  2. I think it is funny in a way. Here we have a party(Democrats) that is run by a group
    of grown men. It seems that they are scared to face Donald Trump in a national
    election(president). Instead of trying to increase the value of their canidate and party,
    they have given up on this option. I think
    they are truly afraid to face Donald Trump. They are probable right that they cannot beat Donald Trump in a fair elections. I think they won in 2020 because they employed so many illegal voting
    schemes like stuffing the ballot boxes, etc. This is why I classify them an cowards. Yes, Biden
    will probably hid in in his hide out and let the crooked press run interference for him.

  3. god and his globalists and his demonrat criminal party and his rino criminal party and his media and his altar boy raping demonrat priests and all gods CRIMINAL organizations that make hell on earth will commit more crimes .
