Cheyenne, WY (RELEASE) January 19th, 2024 — On January 18, Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray, through America First Legal (pro bono) filed an Amicus Curiae brief with the Supreme Court of the United States, arguing that the Supreme Court should reverse the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision to bar Donald Trump from the ballot under Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment. The brief argues that Trump did not engage in an insurrection or rebellion, nor give aid or comfort to the enemies of the United States.

“As Secretaries of State, we must stop the radical Left’s unAmerican and unconstitutional attempts to weaponize the Fourteenth Amendment against the American People,” Secretary Gray said in a statement. “This is why, as Wyoming’s state election officer, I filed an Amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse Colorado’s outrageously wrong and unprecedented decision. I have been repeatedly attacked by the radical left-wing media for my efforts to ensure that Trump will be on the ballot. But I will continue to defend election integrity and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves.”
