Maine Supreme Court Rules Christie Ineligible for 2024 Ballot | 22 Dec 2023 | Maine's highest court has ruled that Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie will not appear on the 2024 ballot after his campaign failed to gather enough certified signatures from registered voters. The decision stems from an appeal brought by Christie's campaign in response to a previous decision by Secretary of State Shenna Bellows that he did not gather the necessary 2,000 certified signatures. Bellows claimed that the Christie campaign turned in just 844 signatures. [LOL!] Christie still has until December 26 to register as a write-in candidate.
