The judge allows Trump to remain on the Colorado ballot despite the “insurrection” he incited at the US Capitol. The ruling was a victory for Trump, but the judge also found that Trump’s conduct and words were a significant factor in the attack. The case was brought by a group of voters, and the ruling can be appealed. Trump’s lawyers argued that his remarks were protected by free speech, and the ruling only applies to the Colorado presidential primary and general election. It is the latest setback for the effort to disqualify Trump, but the decision can be appealed to the state and eventually the US Supreme Court.
