Top New Hampshire Official Mulls Move to Boot Trump from 2024 Ballot

A group of lawmakers are pressuring New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlan (R) to reject ongoing attempts to keep former President Trump off the 2024 ballot using the 14th Amendment. 

“President Donald J. Trump is once again at the forefront of political attacks, this time by those who are attempting to disqualify the former President form appearing on New Hampshire’s primary ballot by weaponizing Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment against him,” the legislators wrote in a letter from the Trump campaign to Scanlan. 

According to The Hill, Scanlan and state Attorney General John Formella (R) issued a statement last month saying they were aware of the discussion around the potential applicability of the 14th Amendment. 

The New Hampshire lawmakers called the argument an “absurd conspiracy theory.”

“The opinions of those perpetuating this fraud against the will of the people are nothing more than a blatant attempt to affront democracy and disenfranchise all voters and the former president,” they wrote. “These individuals who are seeking to deny voters to support their candidate of choice are nothing more than political pawns of the Left doing their bidding, which is disappointing since the Democrat Party has continually tried to strip New Hampshire of its First-in-the-Nation status.”

The legislators pointed to Scanlan’s comments made to NBC News late last month where he said he is “not seeking to remove any names from the presidential primary ballot, and I have not said that I am seeking to remove any names from the presidential primary ballot.”

“We agree wholeheartedly and we should continue to empower voters, not disenfranchise them,” the lawmakers wrote. 

The letter follows a lawsuit from a Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group filed last week seeking to block Trump on the 2024 ballot in Colorado.

  1. If they remove trump from ballot please remember to vote for Trump by write-in vote. Biden is the one that should be removed not Trump. Trump would be fantastic following the disaster Biden and Trump would turn things around very quickly as he doesn’t waste time when it comes to making America great again.

    • Completely agree with you. People tend to forget that on the primary and general election ballot you can write the name of your favorite candidate if their name doe not appear on the ballot. So it doesn’t make any difference if the boot him off.

  2. There is nothing in the 14th Amendment, Article 3 that fits the removal of Trump from the ballot.

    These people are just scared Trump will be elected, and their ‘game(s)’ will be over!

  3. How far is Massachusetts from New Hampshire.. maybe the water can find its way there instead of going after these people. WRITE IN HIS NAME ANYWAY in fact f its on the Ballot which it better well be because other wise its a criminal act against the Constitution, BUT RIGHT IT IN ANYWAY
