The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to keep former President Donald Trump off the ballot in New Hampshire for the 2024 election.
Tax consultant John Anthony Castro, a little-known presidential candidate running as a Republican, filed an appeal with the Supreme Court last month claiming Trump should be disqualified from appearing on New Hampshire’s ballot in 2024 for participating in an “insurrection” on January 6, 2021 in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment.
“The decision by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida dismissing Petitioner John Anthony Castro’s civil action on the grounds that he lacks constitutional standing to sue another candidate who is allegedly unqualified to hold public office in the United States pursuant to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution,” Castro wrote in a petition for a writ of certiorari.
Castro’s petition with the high court comes as numerous left-wing activist groups have tried to block Trump from appearing on state ballots on similar 14th Amendment grounds.
Free Speech for People last week wrote to the secretaries of state of Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, and Wisconsin, calling on them to not include President Trump on those states’ ballots.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a watchdog group founded by a DHS adviser to Joe Biden, also sued last month to keep Trump off the ballot in Colorado.
Trump blasted the “slime balls” at CREW for attempting to keep him off the ballot, calling it unconstitutional.
“The group suing me in Colorado to ridiculously try and Unconstitutionally keep me off the ballot (I am leading against DeSanctimonious by almost 50 points, and beating Crooked Joe, BIG!), is TRUMP DERANGED ‘CREW,’ composed of many slime balls & groups like Norm Eisen through Brookings or Just Security, Andrew Weissmann, Joyce Vance, et al.” Trump said on his Truth Social platform.
Democratic secretaries of state, however, appear to be apprehensive about bringing up constitutional challenges to Trump’s eligibility to run in 2024 in light of numerous scholars pushing back against their legal rationale.
The Supreme Court declining to look at Castro’s case will likely reinforce that hesitancy.
