Maine Secretary Of State Ordered To Delay Trump Ballot Decision

 January 18, 2024

Donald Trump voters will be happy about this one!

An effort by Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows to remove Trump from her ballot may have been thwarted.

After Trump appealed Bellows' original decision to remove him from ballots, Superior Court Justice Michaela Murphy put the brakes on the entire situation.

Now, Murphy has ordered Bellows to wait to alter Maine ballots until the U.S. Supreme Court decides if the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to remove Trump from ballots will remain intact or be reversed.

“Put simply, the United States Supreme Court’s acceptance of the Colorado case changes everything about the order in which these issues should be decided, and by which court. And while it is impossible to know what the Supreme Court will decide, hopefully it will at least clarify what role, if any, state decision-makers, including secretaries of state and state judicial officers, play in adjudicating claims of disqualification brought under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” Murphy wrote.

Bellows will have to sit tight until the official ruling is released.

The nation's highest court will meet to discuss Colorado’s decision on Feb. 8.

This could mean great news for Donald Trump when it comes to winning the primary battle in Maine.

Trump just keeps getting win after win!
