Trump Disqualified from Republican Primary Ballot in Illinois; Here Are All The Details
  • last month
A state judge in Illinois ruled that Donald Trump is disqualified from appearing on the Republican primary ballot in Illinois for the 2024 election. The judge sided with voters who argued Trump should be barred due to violating the anti-insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment for his role in the January 6th insurrection at the US Capitol. The ruling is delayed pending an expected appeal from Trump's campaign. A campaign spokesperson confirmed their intention to appeal, calling the ruling "unconstitutional." The outcome will likely be determined by the US Supreme Court, which is already considering similar cases challenging Trump's eligibility from Colorado and Maine.
