W.Va. joins 19 state-coalition fighting to keep Trump’s name on 2024 ballot

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is continuing his fight to keep former President Donald Trump’s name on the 2024 ballot not just in West Virginia, but in other states as well.

Morrisey, a Republican, announced that West Virginia has now joined a 19-state coalition that is fighting to keep Trump’s name on Colorado’s presidential primary and general elections ballot.

Six voters in Colorado filed a lawsuit claiming Trump is disqualified from office under a Civil War-era insurrection clause in the 14th Amendment because of his involvement in the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, an argument that Morrisey and the 19 states dispute.

The 19-state coalition instead argues that the “Fourteenth Amendment entrusts Insurrection Clause questions to Congress — not state officials or state courts.”

“We need to protect the integrity of our elections, and actions like this undermine the right of the citizens to choose who they want to represent them in every level of government,” Morrisey said. “This is a very simple argument: Congress gets to decide on matters like this.”
