Morrisey, GOP, applauds ruling that allows Trump to remain on West Virginia ballot

State officials are applauding a ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia that will allow former President Donald Trump to remain on West Virginia’s 2024 ballot.

According to Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, the district court dismissed a lawsuit seeking to disqualify Trump from the upcoming West Virginia Presidential Primary and General Elections.

Presidential candidate John Anthony Castro of Texas filed the lawsuit, citing Section 3 of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution as the basis of his case. Castro claimed Trump was ineligible to be a candidate for president in West Virginia on the grounds that he allegedly “engaged in or provided aid or comfort to an insurrection.”

Morrisey said the district court held that Castro lacks standing to bring his claims.

“This is a big win for the integrity of our elections,” Morrisey said. “This lawsuit was frivolous to begin with and without merit — it had no basis in either law or fact.”
