It’s happened again and the fight is just now heating up…

On Wednesday evening, Maine’s Secretary of State disqualified Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 primary ballot.

In her ruling, Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D) cited Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which bans from office those who “engaged in insurrection.” 

Trump Campaign spokesman Steven Cheung derided Bellows as “a virulent leftist and a hyper-partisan Biden-supporting Democrat who has decided to interfere in the presidential election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden.” 

“We are witnessing, in real-time, the attempted theft of an election and the disenfranchisement of the American voter,” Cheung said. “Democrats in blue states are recklessly and un-Constitutionally suspending the civil rights of the American voters by attempting to summarily remove President Trump’s name from the ballot. 

“Make no mistake, these partisan election interference efforts are a hostile assault on American democracy. Biden and the Democrats simply do not trust the American voter in a free and fair election and are now relying on the force of government institutions to protect their grip on power.”

The Maine Republican Party likened the ruling to an attack on democracy. 

“Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, once named the most progressive Senate candidate in America, unilaterally threw Donald Trump off the ballot,” Maine GOP said in a statement. 

“The Maine Republican Party has been fighting these backroom elites since they started their push to subvert democracy by tossing President Trump. Rest assured we’ll be fighting this in court — all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. And we reserve our right as a private organization to use a caucus system if that’s what it takes to keep a Democrat Hack Secretary of State from infringing on the Rights of Maine voters.” 

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make a final decision on Trump’s eligibility nationwide.
