Trump Colorado Ballot Lawsuit

The US Supreme Court and has ruled in favor of Donald Trump.  His Colorado primary votes will be counted.

In what must have been a painful statement the Colorado Secretary of State has issued the following statement.

"The United States Supreme Court has ruled that states do not have the authority to enforce Section 3 of the 14th Amendment for federal candidates. In accordance with this decision, Donald Trump is an eligible candidate on Colorado’s 2024 Presidential Primary."
