Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled against Donald Trump’s appearance on the state’s primary ballot, citing the 14th Amendment, which bars individuals involved in insurrection from seeking office. In a 4-3 decision, they stated it would be unlawful to list Trump as a candidate due to this disqualification. The ruling is the first of its kind, sparking the likelihood of an appeal to the US Supreme Court. The Colorado Supreme Court stayed its decision until January 4, anticipating an appeal. The dissenting Chief Justice argued the court overstepped its authority. Similar challenges in other states have not succeeded yet, but the possibility of these cases reaching the US Supreme Court remains open.
