( – Secretary of State Shenna Bellows (D) from Maine has told CNN that following her Thursday decision to have former President Donald Trump removed from the state’s primary ballot she has received threats.

On Friday, during her appearance on CNN, she argued that she had been prepared for the possible threats that could come her way. She further pointed out that she had a big appreciation for law enforcement and all those people around her who had supported her security and ensured her safety. She added that both her safety and the safety of those she works with are particularly important as they had all received threats, which was “unacceptable.”

On Thursday in her decision, Bellows argued that following the 2020 election, Trump had spent several months pushing a false narrative of election fraud which ultimately led to the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, where Trump’s supporters attempted to block the certification of the presidential election. The decision in Maine came shortly after the Colorado Supreme Court in a 4-3 ruling had reached a similar conclusion.

Bellows argued in her decision that the occasional request made by Trump to request that the rioters were going to be peaceful would not be immunizing his actions. She added that one brief push for his supporters to remain peaceful and follow the law does not immunize him from having spent months pushing a false narrative.

Trump’s campaign was quick to oppose the decision and argued that this was an attempt from the left to interfere with the 2024 presidential election.
