Cheyenne, WY (RELEASE) December 4th, 2023 — On November 29, Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray led and filed an Amicus Curiae brief with the Colorado Supreme Court. Secretary Gray was joined by Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose. The brief argues that the Colorado District Court made an error when it labelled Donald Trump an “insurrectionist,” rather than dismiss the case immediately. The brief also notes that the removal of a candidate from the ballot in one state not only affects that state’s election, but also has far-reaching ramifications in other states with later primaries and caucuses, like Wyoming.

“I have been and will continue to work to protect the right of the voters to decide who represents them,” Secretary Gray said in a statement.  “The weaponization of the Fourteenth Amendment with lawsuits like the one in Colorado undermines the sanctity of the Constitution and our entire election process.  That is why I led this Amicus brief to make sure that Donald Trump will be able to remain on the ballot.  I will continue to protect election integrity, and make sure voters will be able to decide who represents them for themselves.”
