Maine’s Democratic secretary of state disqualified former President Trump from the state’s presidential primary ballot, citing the 14th Amendment’s Section 3, which bans those who “engaged in insurrection” from holding office.

Trump’s lawyers argued bias, and the Maine Republican Party plans to contest the decision in court.

The ruling is suspended pending the state Superior Court’s decision.

Trump Campaign spokesman Steven Cheung, “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.”

This follows a similar decision in Colorado.

Trump’s absence from Maine’s ballot could impact the election due to the state’s split electoral votes.

Similar battles are occurring in other states over Trump’s eligibility based on the 14th Amendment.

The Maine Republican Party said it has been “fighting this attack on the People since the beginning and we’ll never stop.”

“We will be taking this to court and will fight to the Supreme Court if necessary. And we reserve our right as a private organization to use another system – if that’s what it takes to keep a Democrat Hack Secretary of State from infringing on the Rights of Maine voters.”
