Maine election official excludes Trump from 2024 primary ballot over Capitol Riot role

Maine’s Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows, bars Donald Trump from Maine’s 2024 primary ballot. Rooted in the 14th Amendment, this move fuels debates on Trump’s eligibility, paralleling a Colorado decision. Sparked by the Capitol events of January 6, Bellows emphasizes Trump’s alleged role, pausing implementation pending appeals. Legal experts anticipate a Supreme Court resolution. Despite criticism, Bellows upholds her ruling, signaling a potential legal clash and highlighting its national significance in defining eligibility criteria for future elections.
