Colorado Patriots Prepare To Save Trump

(Patriot.Buzz) – Taking a patriotic stance over politically-driven legal maneuvers, the Colorado Republican Party announced its intention to abstain from the GOP primary if former President Donald Trump is excluded from the state’s 2024 ballot.

The announcement was made on the social media platform X and follows a contentious ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court.

Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy’s stance prompted the decision by the state’s GOP. Ramaswamy declared his intention to withdraw from the Colorado GOP primary unless Trump is permitted to be on the ballot. He further urged fellow candidates Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley to follow suit “or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver.”

The Colorado Republicans’ decision comes in the wake of the state Supreme Court’s divisive 4-3 ruling, which declared Trump disqualified from running for the presidency again due to his alleged role in inciting the January 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection. The court’s decision interprets Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which prohibits anyone from holding public office if they have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the U.S.

While the court has temporarily stayed its decision until January 4, pending an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, Trump’s campaign is confident of a favorable outcome. Campaign spokesman Steven Cheung stated, “We have full confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will quickly rule in our favor and finally put an end to these unAmerican lawsuits.”

The ruling has sparked widespread criticism among Republicans and Trump’s allies. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie emphasized that voters, not courts, should decide Trump’s political fate. State Representative Dave Williams, Chairman of the Colorado GOP, criticized the ruling as “absurd,” highlighting his opposition regardless of the political composition of the court.

The timeline for resolving this issue is tight, with Colorado officials highlighting the need for a resolution by January 5, as this is the deadline for printing presidential primary ballots. The Colorado Republican primary is slated for March 5.

The controversy follows a dismissal of the 14th Amendment challenge by Colorado District Judge Sarah Wallace last month, where she argued that the insurrection clause did not include the President as “an officer of the United States” and did not apply to someone who had only taken the Presidential oath.
