Judge Set To Hear Arguments To Keep Trump Off Ballot

via Washington Post

A judge in Michigan is set to hear arguments regarding Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s authority to exclude Donald Trump from state presidential ballots.

Activists are suing to keep Trump off the ballots, citing the 14th Amendment’s prohibition against individuals engaged in insurrection.

Trump’s attorneys are demanding his name be included on the 2024 Republican primary ballot. (Trending: Donald Trump Loses His Cool At High-Stakes $250 Million Trial)

Similar lawsuits have been filed in Colorado and Minnesota.

Benson contends that Michigan’s Legislature does not grant her the authority to disqualify a presidential candidate under the 14th Amendment.

The judge stated that Trump’s appearing or not appearing on the ballot is a “federal constitutional question of enormous consequence.”

“Michigan courts have held that administrative agencies generally do not have the power to determine constitutional questions.”
