Super Tuesday: Supreme Court’s 14th Amendment decision looms large over elections

The Supreme Court‘s pending decision on whether former President Donald Trump should be on Colorado‘s Republican primary ballot makes this Super Tuesday unlike any other.

Colorado Republicans and unaffiliated voters have been able to cast a ballot for Trump. But if the Supreme Court decides in Trump v. Anderson that the former president was ineligible to be on Colorado’s ballot, pursuant to the Constitution‘s 14th Amendment insurrectionist clause, those votes will not be counted, and Trump will not be on the state’s ballot for November’s general election, according to the Colorado Republican Party.
