Officials applaud decision to keep Trump on ballot

On March 4, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a unanimous decision reversing the Colorado Supreme Court’s December ruling to remove Donald Trump from the ballot in 2024.

Some Wyoming politicians released statements to express their approval of this decision.

Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray previously filed an Amicus Curiae brief with the Supreme Court of the United States, arguing that the Supreme Court should reverse the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to bar Donald Trump from the ballot under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment. Secretary Gray’s brief argued that Trump did not engage in an insurrection or rebellion, nor give aid or comfort to the enemies of the United States.

“I am extremely pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision reversing the Colorado Supreme Court’s repugnant ruling,” Secretary Gray said in a statement on March 4. “As Wyoming’s chief election officer, I filed an Amicus brief in January asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse Colorado’s outrageously wrong and unprecedented decision. For this, I have been repeatedly attacked by the radical left-wing media, and even members of the Legislature, for my efforts to ensure that Trump will be on the ballot. Today’s unanimous decision keeping Trump on the ballot marks vindication for the truth and for liberty. As Secretary of State, I will continue to fight to ensure the people of Wyomingites can choose who to elect for themselves.”

U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) also released a statement on March 4 after the Supreme Court unanimously rejected state attempts to ban President Donald Trump from the 2024 presidential ballot.

“The Supreme Court unanimously tossed out an absurd political attempt to block President Donald Trump from the ballot,” Barrasso said. “Today’s decision means that liberal activists will not silence American voters this November. Millions of voters will rightly decide our next president at the ballot box.”
