President Joe Biden will remain on the ballot in Alabama despite a recent ruling by a majority of the Colorado Supreme Court disqualifying former President Donald Trump from appearing on Colorado's primary ballot for the 2024 presidential race.
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall told 1819 News on Thursday, “What we’ve seen from the Colorado Supreme Court is judicial activism.”
“Since Trump was first, elected president in 2016, we’ve been told–ad nauseum–that he presented an existential threat to democracy. But now, thanks to this court, we know what such threat really looks like,” Marshall said.
Some Republican elected officials in other red states have floated the idea of kicking Biden off the ballot in 2024 in states like Florida and Texas. However, it’s unclear how serious their plans are.
Marshall said there "are no plans to remove Biden from the ballot” in Alabama.
“I don’t think anyone in State government, or any serious person in the country, gives credence to the radical view taken by a bare majority of the Colorado Supreme Court. However, Biden will be removed from office by voters in November 2024 because his disastrous policies have made their lives worse. He has willfully allowed illegal aliens to stream across our borders by the millions and made ordinary Americans poorer by eroding their paychecks through his inflationary policies. That is why he will lose in 2024,” Marshall told 1819 News.
