“Lawsuit to block Trump from Colorado 2024 ballot survives more legal challenges”

CNN: Colorado judge presiding over the trial rejected on Friday three more attempts by former President Donald Trump and the Colorado GOP to dismiss the lawsuit seeking to block him from appearing as a presidential candidate in Colorado in 2024.

“‘If the Party, without any oversight, can choose its preferred candidate, then it could theoretically nominate anyone regardless of their age, citizenship, residency,’ she wrote. ‘Such an interpretation is absurd; the Constitution and its requirements for eligibility are not suggestions, left to the political parties to determine at their sole discretion.’

Wallace also cited a 2012 opinion from Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, when he was a Denver-based appeals judge, which said states have the power to ‘exclude from the ballot candidates who are constitutionally prohibited from assuming office.'”
