The Michigan Supreme Court ruled today that the state could not bar Republican former President Donald Trump from appearing on the 2024 primary election ballot. The court ruled in a 5-2 decision that the Michigan Secretary of State’s office had violated the Michigan Election Law when it attempted to stop Trump from appearing on the 2024 primary ballot. The majority opinion concluded that Trump does not meet the definition of a “committed candidate” as defined by state laws, and therefore could not be blocked from appearing on the 2024 primary ballot. The court’s decision reverses an earlier ruling from a lower court, which had allowed the state to block Trump from appearing on the ballot. The ruling is a victory for Trump, who has previously declared his intent to run for president in 2024.
