Jared Golden Explains Why Trump Should Be Left On Maine Ballot

Democratic Maine Rep. Jared Golden pushed back against the decision to remove former President Donald Trump from the primary ballot Thursday, stating until Trump is “found guilty” of “insurrection,” he should remain on the ballot.

Golden took to Twitter to post his response to Secretary of State Shenna Bellows’ decision to remove the former president from Maine’s ballot. Bellows accused Trump of violating the 14th Amendment’s insurrectionist ban. Within her press release, Bellows claimed Trump had “used a false narrative of election fraud to inflame his supporters and direct them to the Capitol to prevent certification of the 2020 election and the peaceful transfer of power.”
