Michigan Supreme Court Allows Trump to Stay on Primary Ballot After Colorado Disqualifies Him from Race

Donald Trump will appear on Michigan’s 2024 presidential primary ballot after the state’s highest court rejected an attempt to disqualify him.

On Wednesday, the Michigan Supreme Court declined to reconsider an earlier Michigan Court of Appeals decision which allowed Trump, 77, to remain on the Republican presidential primary ballot. The group of voters who requested the Supreme Court’s review argued that the former president should be disqualified from the ballot — and the presidency — under the Constitution’s “insurrection clause,” due to his alleged role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

In its Wednesday order, the Michigan Supreme Court said it was “not persuaded” to consider overruling the lower court’s ruling.
