Trump will stay on Minnesota ballots, court rules
ST. PAUL—Republican Donald Trump will remain as an option for Minnesota voters, the state Supreme Court ruled on Monday.
Wholly dismissing the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party's petition to remove Trump from Minnesota ballots, the court said the time is too tight to strike the Republican and still conduct an orderly election. The court's decision was quick: The DFL filed its petition five days before the court blasted it.
The court appeared to give particular weight to information from the Minnesota Secretary of State: At least 1 million general election ballots have already been printed and the absentee voting period begins Sept. 23.
