The Colorado Republican Party plans to switch from a primary election to a caucus system if the ruling against Donald Trump stands.

The Colorado Supreme Court disqualified Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot, citing the U.S. Constitution’s insurrection clause.

This decision, made by justices appointed by Democratic governors, is the first time Section 3 of the 14th Amendment has been used to disqualify a presidential candidate. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy responded, “I pledge to withdraw from the Colorado GOP primary ballot until Trump is also allowed to be on the ballot, and I demand that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley do the same immediately — or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver which will have disastrous consequences for our country.”

The Colorado Republican Party said, “You won’t have to because we will withdraw from the Primary as a Party and convert to a pure caucus system if this is allowed to stand.”

“We do not reach these conclusions lightly,” wrote the Colorado court’s majority.

“We are mindful of the magnitude and weight of the questions now before us. We are likewise mindful of our solemn duty to apply the law, without fear or favor, and without being swayed by public reaction to the decisions that the law mandates we reach.”

The court’s decision is stayed until Jan. 4, pending a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court, and must be resolved by Jan. 5 for the state’s ballot printing deadline.

Republican figures and legal analysts have expressed outrage at the ruling.
