The Minnesota Supreme Court has dismissed a legal challenge aiming to prevent Donald Trump from the state’s 2024 primary ballot using the “insurrection clause.”
The court ruled that political parties can put anyone on the primary ballot.
“There is no state statute that prohibits a major political party from placing on the presidential nomination primary ballot, or sending delegates to the national convention supporting, a candidate who is ineligible to hold office,” Chief Justice Natalie Hudson ruled.

The decision does not, however, impact the general election.
Trump celebrated the dismissal, claiming the whole challenge was a “HOAX.”
“Ridiculous 14th Amendment lawsuit just thrown out by Minnesota Supreme Court,” Trump pressed.
“Congratulations to all who fought this HOAX!”
“Today’s decision in Minnesota, like New Hampshire before it, is further validation of the Trump Campaign’s consistent argument that the 14th Amendment ballot challenges are nothing more than strategic, un-Constitutional attempts to interfere with the election by desperate Democrats who see the writing on the wall: President Trump is dominating the polls and has never been in a stronger position to end the failed Biden presidency next November,” Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said.
Efforts to remove Trump from state ballots have been widespread, with similar lawsuits in Michigan and Colorado.
Legal experts anticipate the issue has potential to reach the U.S. Supreme Court.
