Team Trump takes victory lap as Michigan dismisses 14th Amendment cases against candidacy
Apart from the Michigan and Minnesota challenges, Trump has had to contend with such efforts in Colorado as well, though the court has yet to issue a decision in that case.
Former President Donald Trump's campaign is celebrating the dismissal of a litany of cases in Michigan challenging his eligibility to run for president again.
Trump has struggled to fend off challenges to his appearing on the ballot in multiple states. The litany of challenges have largely asserted that he was ineligible to hold public office under the 14th Amendment for having led an "insurrection" against the nation in the form of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol Riot. He recently notched a win at the Minnesota Supreme Court allowing him to appear on the GOP primary ballot.
On Tuesday, a Michigan court dismissed similar challenges to his eligibility, prompting triumphant declarations from the campaign.
"Earlier today, the state court in Michigan dismissed the remaining 14th Amendment challenges to President Trump's ballot eligibility for 2024. This decision follows yesterday’s dismissal of a claim in Wayne County, MI and prior dismissals in Minnesota and New Hampshire, as well as the recommended dismissal of a similar claim in South Carolina," Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said. "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."
"While the Trump Campaign welcomes these dismissals in Michigan and anticipates the future dismissals of the other 14th Amendment cases, we are most focused on once again winning the great state of Michigan and the re-election of President Trump next year," he concluded.
