Virginia’s state House Speaker Don Scott, a Democrat and the first black man in the role, believes former President Donald Trump is “too extreme” to be on the state’s ballot in the November presidential election.

This comes amidst legal battles in various states over Trump’s eligibility for the ballot. U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal regarding Trump’s ballot access.

However, a similar effort to bar Trump from Virginia’s ballot was dismissed by a U.S. District Judge. (Trending: Anthony Fauci Questioned About Evidence Behind COVID Restrictions)

“In my opinion, he should not” be on Virginia’s ballot, Scott said.

“He’s too extreme for Virginia, and he’ll continue to be.”

“Although this increasingly litigated legal question of whether former President Trump may be disqualified from running for or serving in public office raises issues of the utmost importance in our democratic system of self-governance, the Court cannot reach the merits of plaintiff’s claims because it lacks subject-matter jurisdiction,” the judge ruled.

Governor Glenn Youngkin supports the court’s decision, emphasizing that the choice belongs to the voters, not the courts.

“I applaud this decision in advance of Virginia’s presidential primary. The choice belongs to the voters, not the courts,” Youngkin wrote.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the appeal of Colorado’s ballot ruling on Feb. 8.
