The Minnesota Supreme Court has scheduled a hearing to determine if the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution can be used to keep Donald Trump off of the 2024 presidential ballot.
Earlier this month, a coalition led by Free Speech For the People sued to prevent Trump's name from appearing on the ballot because of a Civil War-era constitutional amendment that said insurrectionists could not serve in office.
The state's high court said this week there would be a Nov. 30 hearing on the case.
The group argues that Trump participated in an insurrection by inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
In setting the hearing date, the state Supreme Court allowed the state Republican party to respond to the lawsuit. The Trump campaign and Secretary of State Steve Simon are also expected to respond, according to the Star Tribune.
"The Republican Party of Minnesota believes that voters in Minnesota should ultimately decide through voting which candidates are qualified to represent them in public office," GOP state party Chair David Hann said in a statement.
A judge is scheduled to hear a similar effort to keep Trump off the ballot in Colorado on Oct. 30.
Donald Trump Thursday night took a swipe at Fox News and the GOP debates, calling on an end to the primary and on those in the media to "stop with the bad debates and negative ads."
After that, he called for an end to the debates altogether.
Trump, who has skipped the first two debates and said he plans to avoid them all, had this to say late Thursday.
"The second Republican Primary Debate on FoxNews had the Lowest Viewership since 2016. Their overall Ratings are down 30%," he added. "FOX NEEDS MAGA, THEY JUST DON’T KNOW IT YET. STOP WITH THE BAD DEBATES & NEGATIVE ADS, NO MORE. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! DJT."
