State of Maine confirms Trump's eligibility after Supreme Court ruling

Maine's top election official formally restored Donald Trump's place on the state's 2024 ballot after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states cannot bar him from running for office based on the 14th “insurrectionary ban.” Amendment of the Constitution.

Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows, a member of the Democratic party, ruled in December last year that the former president was ineligible for the state's votes, but the decision was suspended while the Supreme Court analyzed a similar case in Colorado.

In light of Monday's decision from the high court, Bellows wrote: “Consistent with my oath and obligation to follow the law and the Constitution, and in accordance with the Anderson decision, I withdraw my determination that Mr. .Trump is invalid.”

The Maine primaries will take place this Tuesday (5), a date known as Super Tuesday, in which several states will have votes.
