Colorado Secretary of State says Trump will stay on the ballot after Supreme Court to hear appeal

SCOTUS will hear oral arguments come February 8.


The Colorado Secretary of State has stated that former President Donald Trump is going to be staying on the ballot after the Supreme Court has decided to hear the appeal.  

Jena Griswold, who was elected in 2018 as the youngest secretary of state in the country, has certified the ballot for the primary election with Trump included.  

Griswold posted the notice on X, stating, "Colorado’s 2024 Presidential primary ballot is certified. The United States Supreme Court has accepted the case, and Donald Trump will appear on the ballot as a result." 

The post has nearly two million views as of Saturday morning, and many have been slamming Griswold for previous comments she made about Trump's activities on Jan. 6, 2021.  

Among reactions on X included the influential conservative account Catturd, who posted, "Why are you a communist?" 

In a previous video Griswold posted on Thursday, she lamented the thought that Trump could be on the ballot for the presidential primary in 2024.  

"The American people deserve to know whether a president can engage in insurrection and then return to office," she posted in the caption.  

"Donald Trump is trying to argue that he did not incite an insurrection. Well, two Colorado courts at this point have determined that he did," Griswold added in the video. "And then Trump goes on to argue that even if he did incite the insurrection, well the constitution doesn't apply to him." 

Right before the New Year, on Dec. 28, Griswold had stated in a press release, "Donald Trump engaged in insurrection and was disqualified under the Constitution from the Colorado Ballot." 

"The Colorado Supreme Court got it right. This decision is now being appealed," she added. "I urge the US Supreme Court to act quickly given the upcoming presidential primary election." 

Earlier last month, the Colorado Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that Trump would be disqualified under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which states that "[n]o person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States" if they have "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against" the United States.  

The Supreme Court is to hear the appeal on Feb. 8, 2024 on the question, "Did the Colorado Supreme Court err in ordering President Trump excluded from the 2024 presidential primary ballot?"
