All the States Trying to Kick Trump Off the Ballot and Where Cases Stand

• https://www.newsweek.com BY KAITLIN LEWIS

Several other states are still weighing challenges that seek to remove Trump from the 2024 primary ballot. The lawsuits argue that Trump is ineligible to run under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which bars officials who have sworn an oath to the Constitution from holding office if they engaged in insurrection.

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled last week that Trump should be barred from the state's ballot because of his alleged role in the riots at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Trump is facing federal charges in connection to his actions leading up to the riots, which followed after the former president addressed his supporters during a rally on Capitol Hill.
