The Daily Signal: Supreme Court to Expedite Review of Colorado’s Unilateral Removal of Trump From State’s Ballot

This article was written by Katelynn Richardson and published on The Daily Signal.

The Supreme Court agreed Friday to hear former President Donald Trump’s appeal of the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to kick him off the state’s ballot.


The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Dec. 19 that Trump is ineligible to be on the state’s primary ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The U.S. Supreme Court set oral arguments to consider Trump’s appeal for Feb. 8.


Trump appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court on Wednesday. The Colorado Republican Party previously filed a separate appeal Dec. 27.


“The question of eligibility to serve as President of the United States is properly reserved for Congress, not the state courts, to consider and decide,” Trump’s petition stated. “By considering the question of President Trump’s eligibility and barring him from the ballot, the Colorado Supreme Court arrogated Congress’ authority.”
