Maine also bans Trump from voting; is the second state

Maine This Thursday became the second state to kick former President Donald Trump out of the Republican Party’s internal elections to select the candidate for the 2024 presidential election.

In a document shared by several US media outlets, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows announced the decision, claiming:

Trump cannot participate in the election because he participated in an insurrection.

“I don’t just come to this conclusion. Democracy is sacred. I am aware that no Secretary of State has ever denied a presidential candidate access to the ballot box under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment.

“However, I am also aware that no presidential candidate has ever participated in an insurrection before,” he said.

Bellows’ decision comes a week after the Colorado Supreme Court, in historic fashion, ruled in favor of expelling the Republican from his party’s primary.

The Republican Party is asking the court to overturn the decision that prevented Trump from participating in the elections

The Republican Party of Colorado decided on Wednesday to appeal the decision to ban Trump from running for the US Supreme Court.

The appeal means the court’s stay on the ruling, which was set to expire on Jan. 4, will be extended indefinitely until the U.S. Supreme Court announces whether it will hear the appeal and, if so, until it hears a final ruling. about the subject.
