Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray submitted an amicus brief on Friday in support of former President Donald Trump’s appeal to the Supreme Court to keep him on the Colorado 2024 presidential primary ballot. 

In the court filing, Gray argued that the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to kick Trump off the ballot was wrongfully decided and unconstitutional. The court ruled that Trump was ineligible under the insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment in December. Gray said that the decision was unprecedented and “outrageously wrong.”

“As Secretaries of State, we must stop the radical Left’s unAmerican and unconstitutional attempts to weaponize the Fourteenth Amendment against Trump and the American People,” he said. “Despite the repeated attacks I have received from the radical left-wing media for my efforts to ensure that Trump will be able to be on the ballot, I will continue to unapologetically defend the truth and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves.”

In the filing, Gray said that he had an interest in the case as the decision disenfranchised millions of voters and harmed voter confidence in elections nationwide, including in Wyoming. The brief says that Trump did not engage in insurrection and or that he gave aid to the enemies of the United States. 

The brief was filed on behalf of Gray by America First Legal and Stone Hilton PLLC.


“The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision is completely inconsistent with the text and historical interpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Secretary Gray is an American patriot committed to the rule of law, and we are thrilled to be able to file this brief on his behalf,” said AFL Vice President Gene Hamilton.

The Supreme Court has not yet ruled on Trump’s appeal, but is set to hear arguments on February 8, with Colorado’s primary set to take place on March 5. In a brief filed to the court on Thursday, Trump said that “chaos” would be unleashed if the Supreme Court upheld his removal from the ballot. 

“The court should put a swift and decisive end to these ballot-disqualification efforts, which threaten to disenfranchise tens of millions of Americans and which promise to unleash chaos and bedlam if other state courts and state officials follow Colorado’s lead and exclude the likely Republican presidential nominee from their ballots,” his legal team wrote.
