The Colorado Republican Party revealed on Wednesday that if the state Supreme Court decision to ban former President Donald Trump from the primary ballot is allowed to stand, they will stand by his side and turn toward a caucus system in order to ensure the votes and voices of fellow member of the GOP are allowed to be heard. The highest court in the state ruled against Trump being allowed on the ballot due to their belief that he helped cause and/or orchestrate the so-called “insurrection” that took place on Jan. 6, 2021.
What we have here is an attempt by radial leftists to control who people can and cannot vote for, limiting their choice of candidates to only those they approve of. Sure, there are always restrictions on eligibility and what not, but the point here is this is political warfare and nothing more. Trump has not been convicted of any sort of wrong doing, yet, he’s been treated as if he were a criminal. When you look at the four indictments he’s battling through and the history he has of being attacked by progressives, it is clear this is their attempt to stop a rematch between the former president and current commander-in-chief, Joe Biden.
“We think this is an absurd ruling and we’re going to do whatever we can to protect the rights of voters in Colorado and frankly, across the nation, if they choose Donald Trump,” Dave Williams, chair of the Colorado Republican Party, said during an interview with CNN.
“But we’re going to appeal this to the United States Supreme Court. We’re a party to the case, and we’re not going to take this lying down and, if need be, we’re going to withdraw from the primary and go to a strict caucus process that would allow our voters to choose Donald Trump if they want,” he continued.

A divided Colorado Supreme Court on Tuesday declared Trump ineligible for the White House under the U.S. Constitution’s insurrection clause and removed him from the state’s presidential primary ballot, setting up a likely showdown in the nation’s highest court to decide whether the front-runner for the GOP nomination can remain in the race.
The decision from a court whose justices were all appointed by Democrat governors marks the first time in history that Section 3 of the 14th Amendment has been used to disqualify a presidential candidate. Trump has vowed to appeal the state high court’s 4-3 decision.
GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy on Wednesday pledged to withdraw if the disqualification of Trump is sustained.
“I pledge to withdraw from the Colorado GOP primary ballot until Trump is also allowed to be on the ballot,” Ramaswamy went on to say in a video shared on social media Tuesday. “And I demand that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley do the same immediately — or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver, which will have disastrous consequences for our country.”
As of now, it seems DeSantis is going to stay in the race regardless, which is a decision that may come back to haunt him after primary season.
