Secretary of State delivers devastating election news to Donald Trump that he may never recover from

It’s no secret that the radical Left doesn’t want Trump to win the presidential election. And they might have just gotten their wish.

That’s because the Secretary of State delivers devastating election news to Donald Trump that he may never recover from.

Disaster struck the Trump campaign two weeks ago when the Colorado Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump could not appear on the state’s ballot.

Their reasoning was that Trump participated in an insurrection on January 6, 2021 and was therefore disqualified due to Section Three (the Insurrection Clause) of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Now, the state of Maine is following in Colorado’s footsteps, with Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D) also ruling the former president ineligible for the state’s ballot.

On December 15, Bellows put together a hearing which included three challenges to Donald Trump’s nomination, according to her official ruling.

The first two challenges, “contest Mr. Trump’s qualification for office under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” Bellows said in her ruling.

“The third challenge, filed by Paul Gordon (the ‘Gordon Challenge’), contests Mr. Trump’s qualification under the Twenty-Second Amendment.”

“For the reasons set forth below, I conclude that Mr. Trump’s primary petition is invalid.”

“Specifically, I find that the declaration on his candidate consent form is false because he is not qualified to hold the office of the President under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment,” Bellows’ ruling continued.

Fortunately for Trump and his campaign, Bellows’ ruling will not be set in stone until the United States Supreme Court makes a decision on the issue.

Her decision also comes in the wake of Trump’s legal team arguing that Bellows should be recused from this case because she is a “completely biased Democrat partisan.”

As previously mentioned, Colorado was the first state to rule the former president ineligible, with the state’s Supreme Court ruling 4-3 to ban him from the ballot.

“We consider and reject President Trump’s argument that his speech on January 6 was protected by the First Amendment,” their ruling said.

Despite their decision, Trump’s name will still appear on the state’s primary ballot as his team has appealed the decision.

“With the appeal filed, Donald Trump will be included as a candidate on Colorado’s 2024 Presidential Primary Ballot when certification occurs on January 5, 2024, unless the US Supreme Court declines to take the case or otherwise affirms the Colorado Supreme Court ruling,” the office of Colorado Secretary of State, Jena Griswold said.

As more and more states continue to weigh the option of prohibiting Trump from appearing on their ballot, he and his campaign team are hoping the U.S. Supreme Court will put an end to all of this once and for all with a favorable ruling.

But still expect the Left to try and come up with more ways to prevent the former president from winning a second bid to the White House.
