Trump will remain on ballot in Michigan, judge rules

November 17, 2023

Michigan Court of Claims Judge James Robert Redford ruled Tuesday that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) can't keep former President Donald Trump off the ballot by using the 14th Amendment.

Benson had already said she wouldn't seek to keep Trump off the ballot, anyway, but the case can now be used by Trump to defend against other attempts to take him off the ballot.

Redford said there was only one way to get Trump off the ballot, and that's for Congress to do it.

Trump hasn't been found guilty of any "insurrection." If he had been, the 14th Amendment ostensibly says he shouldn't be allowed to hold public office.

“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,” Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said.

Similar cases are still pending in Colorado and Minnesota.
