Paul Collins Comments on Colorado’s Supreme Court ruling on Trump a ‘victory for democracy’

Paul Collins, legal studies and political science, comments on the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision barring former President Donald Trump from that state’s presidential primary ballot. “It’s almost impossible to believe that the [U.S.] Supreme Court will not accept this case,” Collins says. “It addresses a matter of exceptional importance, and the question of whether the 14th Amendment’s disqualification clause applies to presidents is a question that has not been answered by the Supreme Court before.” (El País [Spain], 12/21/23; The Boston GlobeDaily Hampshire Gazette, 12/21/23)
