Efforts to bar former President Donald Trump from primary and general election ballots are gaining momentum, with Maine and Colorado already barring him based on a constitutional amendment disqualifying officials who engaged in insurrection.
Legal challenges are ongoing in multiple states, with the U.S. Supreme Court expected to weigh in.
The 14th Amendment’s Section 3, meant to prevent Confederate officials from holding office, is at the center of these efforts.
Lawsuits are active in 14 states, and the Supreme Court’s decision could determine the outcome.
Additional challenges are planned, and the issue is expected to unfold in the coming months.
