Following the unilateral ruling of Maine’s Secretary of State to strike Donald Trump from the state’s ballots, the Trump campaign issued a scathing rebuke to the overtly partisan decision.
As previously reported by Trending Politics, Bellows claimed the decision to be based upon the same interpretation of the 14th Amendment that was made in Colorado last week and is pending challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Within a matter of minutes of the decision being reported, Steven Cheung, Trump Campaign Spokesman sent out the statement:
“The Maine Secretary of State is…a virulent leftist hyper-partisan…who has decided to interfere in the presidential election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden. We are witnessing, in real-time, the attempted theft of an election and disenfranchisement of the American voter.” pic.twitter.com/gNcueiLYSc

“The Maine Secretary of State is a former ACLU attorney, a virulent leftist and a hyper-partisan Biden-supporting Democrat who has decided to interfere in the presidential election on behalf of Crooked Joe Biden,” he began.
“We are witnessing, in real-time, the attempted theft of an election and the disenfranchisement of the American voter. Democrats in blue states are recklessly and un-Constitutionally suspending the civil rights of the American voters by attempting to summarily remove President Trump’s name from the ballot. Make no mistake, these partisan election interference efforts are a hostile assault on American democracy.”
Biden and the Democrats simply do not trust the American voter in a free and fair election and are now relying on the force of government institutions to protect their grip on power.”
Cheung explained the situation in detail, “State courts in Michigan and Minnesota have rejected these bad-faith, bogus 14th Amendment ballot challenges, as have federal courts in New Hampshire, Arizona, Florida, Rhode Island, West Virginia, along with ten other federal jurisdictions. We know both the Constitution and the American people are on our side in this fight. President Trump’s dominating campaign has a commanding lead in the polls that has dramatically expanded as Crooked Joe Biden’s presidency continues to fail.”
The spokesman promised in the statement that the campaign “will quickly file a legal objection in state court to prevent this atrocious decision in Maine from taking effect.”
Blaze Media’s Chad Prather shared an image of Bellows with incumbent President Joe Biden with the caption: “This women just removed Trump from the 2024 Maine Republican primary ballot. Shenna Bellows has put our democracy at risk and should RESIGN IMMEDIATELY for her actions as Secretary of State.”

Arizona’s GOP frontrunner for U.S. Senate in 2024 Kari Lake called upon the Supreme Court to intervene in a post to X writing, “A Far Left Secretary of State just took President Trump off the ballot in Maine. This is election interference. The sacred right for American citizens to choose their next President is under attack. Democrats fear they can’t beat Donald Trump at the ballot box, so they’re depriving your right to vote for him. The Supreme Court must put an end to this madness NOW.”
