Breaking: Maine's secretary of state removes Trump from 2024 primary ballot | 28 Dec 2023 | Former President Donald Trump was removed from Maine's primary ballot under the Constitution's insurrection clause on Thursday. The decision was made by Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D), whom Trump's legal team requested be disqualified from ruling whether or not Trump is eligible for the 2024 ballot. In other states, plaintiffs have sued regarding Trump's eligibility, but in Maine, the secretary of state first weighs in and the decision can be challenged in court. Maine has only four electoral votes but it's one of two states to split them, and Trump won one of Maine's electors in 2020.
