On Tuesday, a judge in Michigan rejected an attempt to bar former President Donald Trump from the state's 2024 ballot.
The judge clarified that, according to Michigan law, the secretary of state lacks the authority to intervene in a primary election if the political party chooses to include a candidate who might not meet the office's qualifications.
In the ruling, the judge emphasized that the ultimate decision rests with the respective political party, and it requires the consent of the candidate listed.
This decision follows a legal challenge filed in September by a group of Michigan voters, contending that Trump's actions to challenge the 2020 election results and the Jan 6 riot at the Capitol rendered him ineligible for office under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
"While our appeal is pending, the trial court’s decision isn’t binding on any other court, and we continue our current and planned legal actions in other states to enforce Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment against Donald Trump," Ron Fein, lawyer for the petitioners said.
Trump has labeled such endeavors as "nonsense" and "election interference," rejecting them outright.
"Each and every one of these ridiculous cases have LOST because they are all un-Constitutional left-wing fantasies orchestrated by monied allies of the Biden campaign seeking to turn the election over to the courts and deny the American people the right to choose their next president," Trump spox Steven Cheung said in a statement.
