Morrisey files to intervene in lawsuit that seeks to have Trump removed from West Virginia ballots

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey said Monday he has filed to intervene in a lawsuit that seeks to have former President Donald Trump removed from the Mountain State’s 2024 ballot.

Morrisey said he is intervening on behalf of the state — and all voters who should have a right to select a candidate of their choosing — in the lawsuit, which was filed last week by a resident of Texas in the United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. It seeks to have Trump kicked off the West Virginia 2024 presidential ballot on the grounds that he “engaged in or provided ‘aid or comfort’ to an insurrection.”

“Excluding an eligible candidate from the ballot deprives citizens of the choice for themselves who they want to represent them in every level of government and impedes a fair and free election process,” Morrisey, a Republican, said Monday. “Any eligible candidate has the right to be on the ballot unless legally disqualified, and we will defend the laws of West Virginia and the right of voters and candidates to the fullest.”
