The Colorado Supreme Court, which is made up entirely of justices nominated by Democrats, reached a groundbreaking and contentious ruling on Tuesday. The state’s highest court ruled 4-3 to disqualify former President Donald Trump from the state’s Republican primary election in 2024.
William W. Hood III, Melissa Hart, Richard L. Gabriel, and Monica Márquez are the four justices who made the decision. Each of these justices, appointed by Democratic-affiliated governors, has had their background thoroughly investigated in light of the decision.
The decision has caused a great deal of controversy because it is based on the 14th Amendment’s Section 3, which bars people who have participated in an insurrection from running for federal office. A lot of people think the decision was politically motivated and set a dangerous precedent for American politics.
