(The Center Square) – The Wyoming Supreme Court this week dismissed an appeal in a case attempting to keep former President Donald Trump off the state’s ballot.

The case, brought by attorney Tim Newcomb, was dismissed in district court in January, but appealed to the state Supreme Court. Newcomb sought to keep Trump off the ballot because of the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, citing the 14th Amendment.

“I have been working hard to keep President Trump on the ballot,” Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray said in a statement. “I’m extremely pleased with the Wyoming Supreme Court’s dismissal of Mr. Newcomb’s outrageously wrong lawsuit.”

In neighboring Colorado, the state Supreme Court determined Trump could be disqualified from the state’s ballot. Gray was part of a group who submitted a brief to the Colorado Supreme Court asking it to dismiss the case. The U.S. Supreme Court in March unanimously overruled the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision.

“Because the Constitution makes Congress, rather than the States, responsible for enforcing Section 3 against federal officeholders and candidates, we reverse,” the U.S. Supreme Court ruling stated.

Gray added in his statement Tuesday: “Radical leftists and liberal elites have tried everything they can to weaponize the Fourteenth Amendment against Trump and the American People, but this dismissal marks continued vindication for the truth and for liberty. As Secretary of State, I will always fight to ensure the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves.”
