Former President Donald Trump will remain on the ballot in Michigan.
Michigan’s Supreme Court ruled that it is keeping Donald Trump on the state’s primary election ballot.
The court said Wednesday it will not hear an appeal of a lower court’s ruling from groups seeking to keep Trump from appearing on the ballot.
The ruling contrasts with the December 19 decision by a divided Colorado Supreme Court which found Trump ineligible to be president because of his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. That ruling was the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment has been used to disqualify a presidential candidate.
Trump hailed the order, calling the effort to keep him off the ballot in multiple states a “pathetic gambit.”
