December 20—Yesterday, a slim majority of liberal Colorado Supreme Court justices issued an unprecedented decision to remove former President Trump from their state’s 2024 ballot. The Court is attempting to claim the former President is ineligible under the 14th Amendment insurrection clause, although Donald Trump has never been convicted of insurrection by any jury.
The Republican Party of New Mexico chairman and former U.S. Representative for New Mexico’s Second Congressional District, Steve Pearce, issued the following statement:
“The Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling to keep former President Trump off the ballot should disturb every American regardless of party affiliation.
Attempting to disqualify the leading Republican Presidential candidate from receiving votes while ignoring adequate due process is a disgraceful assault on the right to a free and fair election.
We cannot allow radical progressives to deny citizens their choice and right to a fair democratic process as they do in Socialist countries. The will of the American people, not a rogue group of judges, should decide who the next President will be.
The U.S. Supreme Court should swiftly strike down this order.
If Democratic politicians, especially in New Mexico, will not condemn this egregious ruling, they should never claim they stand for ‘democracy’ or ‘voting rights.’
The Republican Party of New Mexico will fight to protect every citizen’s right to vote from any attempted assaults within our state.”
