( – Former President Donald Trump’s opponents have not managed to have him stop being the leader in the Republican presidential primary race by having him removed from the primary ballot in Massachusetts.

On Monday the State Ballot Law Commission dismissed a challenge against the former President with the panel determining that they did not have the necessary jurisdiction over the matter. Republican Party of Massachusetts Chair Amy Carnevale applauded the decision to dismiss the case which will allow the voters to decide on who they want their nominee to be. In her post on X, formerly known as Twitter she further pointed out that these efforts were going to undercut the democratic system. Finally, she noted that it would be entirely on voters to decide on who the nominee should be.

Massachusetts is only of the states where Trump’s eligibility in the primary election has come into question. The challenges in over a dozen states are focused on Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot and rely on the 14th Amendment to the Constitution which blocks anyone who had previously held office and has engaged in insurrection from holding office again.

Colorado was the first state to disqualify Trump from appearing in its state’s primary ballot in December 2023 following a decision from the Colorado Supreme Court.

The decision has been appealed by the former president and the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to decide on the matter. Trump has also appealed a similar ruling by Maine’s secretary of state who disqualified him from the primary ballot in the state.
