9th District’s Clyde, others react to Trump being banned from Colorado ballot

Colorado Supreme Court on Tuesday declared former President Donald Trump ineligible for the White House under the U.S. Constitution’s insurrection clause and removed him from the state’s presidential primary ballot, setting up a likely showdown in the nation’s highest court to decide whether the front-runner for the GOP nomination can remain in the race.

The decision prompted swift reaction from many Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Jackson County), 9th District of Georgia’s representative in Congress. “ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!,” Clyde declared on X, formerly Twitter, shortly after the court’s decision was made public. “The Colorado Supreme Court has removed President Trump from the state’s 2024 ballot.”

The decision from a court whose justices were all appointed by Democratic governors marks the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment has been used to disqualify a presidential candidate.
