Wyoming Election Chief Slams Efforts To Keep Trump From Primaries

After the Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump should be included on Colorado primary ballots, Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray celebrated a win for democracy.

Speaking to Fox News in a phone interview, Gray said the ruling exposed the ‘pure lunacy’ of the radical left movement.

“It’s a huge moment for the American people. And I think one of the lessons of this is … the way the radical left despises the American people and our process, and what happens then is lunacy. And that’s what their whole argumentation and what they were trying to do was. It was pure lunacy,” he stated.

In a Monday decision that tilted in Trump’s favor, the nine Supreme Court justices agreed that the state of Colorado does not have the authority to stop Trump’s candidacy and render him ineligible for the leadership post based on the Insurrection Clause of the 14th Amendment.

“We conclude that States may disqualify persons holding or attempting to hold state office. But States have no power under the Constitution to enforce Section 3 with respect to federal offices, especially the Presidency,” the court wrote.

Before the higher court’s ruling, Gray had condemned the efforts to remove Trump from states’ primary ballots, deriding them as “bunk.” Now, he is relieved his hopes and predictions have come to pass.

“We kind of saw this coming. Last year, we wrote a letter to the New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlon, when he was toying with the whole thing. And explained to him why this is totally inconsistent with the values of our republic, why Trump should be kept on the ballot for the New Hampshire primary, and why there was a national interest for other states to weigh in on this,” he said.

“I think that we saw this coming,” he added. “We saw the national interest here. That all 50 states had an interest in this case, because when one state denies electors to a presidential candidate, that affects every single other state because that makes it more difficult for a candidate to achieve the 270 to reach victory. On top of that, states with later primaries or caucuses, like Wyoming, are affected if one state wants to remove a candidate from the primary or caucus ballot. So all 50 states had an interest in this.”

“Even in the state’s House, some of these arguments of the radical left are leading to lunacy and conclusions that don’t make any sense. But that’s what happens. The fact that the radical left despises the American people, our Republic, the traditions of our republic, that’s what this leads to. And it was really important that the national Supreme Court stepped in,” he said further, insisting that the “writing was on the wall.”
