Former President Donald Trump's campaign on Tuesday celebrated a court victory in Arizona as a federal court in the state rejected an attempt to keep him off the ballot under the 14th Amendment.

"Today, federal court in Arizona dismissed another bad faith, 14th Amendment challenge to President Trump's ballot status. President Trump remains undefeated in beating back these scurrilous lawsuits brought forth by a thirsty, Biden-allied troll in a desperate publicity campaign," said campaign spokesman Steven Cheung. 

"Each and every one of these 'Castro Cases' are not only a feeble attempt to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, but they are a huge waste of time for our nation’s judiciary," he continued. "We urge the swift disposal of all remaining 14th Amendment cases putting this matter to rest faster than the recently deceased term 'Bidenomics.'"

The former president has faced a litany of lawsuits seeking to keep him off the ballot under the 14th Amendment, contending that he is ineligible to hold public office for having allegedly staged an insurrection against the United States. Thus far, none have succeeded. 

The Trump team's press release specifically highlighted failed efforts to keep him off the ballot in Washington, Rhode Island, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.
