Read the Maine decision to remove Trump from the 2024 primary ballot

Maine is the second state to block former president Donald Trump from running again under a part of the U.S. Constitution that prevents insurrectionists from holding office. In a decision Thursday, Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D) wrote that “the U.S. Constitution does not tolerate an assault on the foundations of our government, and [Maine law] requires me to act in response.”

The decision is sure to be appealed. Last week, Colorado Supreme Court found Trump could not appear on the ballot there, and the Colorado Republican Party has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case. The nation’s high court could resolve for all states whether Trump can run again.

You can read Bellows’ decision below. If you’re unable to read the full text on mobile, the full pdf is available here.
