Rokita Legal Effort Protects President Trump’s Ballot Access

Rokita Leadership Helps Trump Win U.S. Supreme Court Ballot Case

Todd Co-Led A 27-State Coalition Arguing in Favor of United States Supreme Court Decision 

The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Colorado and other states cannot remove President Trump from the ballot.  Todd Rokita predicted this 9-0 decision and co-led 27 states in a legal filing before the Supreme Court. 

Below is a public news release from the Attorney General’s office:

SCOTUS finds Trump eligible to appear on ballot 
As AG Rokita previously and publicly predicted, the US Supreme Court unanimously sides with top Republican presidential candidate in 9-0 decision   

Attorney General Todd Rokita co-led the charge in support of former President Donald Trump’s right to appear on the Colorado ballot, and today, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously agreed.  

“I predicted this unanimous decision since the beginning,” Attorney General Rokita said. “This was a clear attempt to disenfranchise and dilute the voices of millions of voters who benefited from former President Donald Trump’s time as Commander in Chief.”  

The U.S. Supreme Court opinion embraced the central argument put forward in two amicus briefs—one with 25 states, another with 27 states—led by Indiana and West Virginia. In this rare instance, the Constitution rightly gives Congress, not individual states, authority to decide who is eligible to run for federal office under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.  

“With a 9-0 decision, I hope we can all now finally agree that Trump has a right to appear on the ballot,” Attorney General Rokita said. “This is a huge win for liberty and preserves confidence in the integrity of our elections.”  

As a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, individual states cannot wield Section 3 to deny a candidate for federal office from the ballot—this resolves the issue nationwide.
