Arizona Lawmaker Proposes To Take Biden Off Ballot

December 29, 2023

An Arizona legislator is turning the tables on the Democrat incumbent President of the United States.

Earlier this month, freshman State Representative Cory McGarr announced that he would be sponsoring a bill in the upcoming legislative session to “remove Joe Biden from the ballot.”

The news was released alongside two other legislators from other states – Pennsylvania State Representative Aaron Bernstine and Georgia State Representative Charlice Byrd. Bernstine and Byrd also plan on introducing similar bills in their respective chambers, according to their release.

In a post on “X,” McGarr said, “Biden is leading an insurrection on the border. Time to remove him from the ballot.”

The catalyst for the bills stemmed from the recent decision from the Colorado State Supreme Court to remove former President Donald J. Trump from the ballot in the state for 2024. The trio of legislators admitted as much in a joint statement, saying, “The absurdity of radical Democrat judges removing Donald Trump from the ballot in Colorado will be a stain on the American political system for decades. By their very own interpretation of the law, Joe Biden is 100% not eligible to run for political office.” The lawmakers added, “Democrats’ insane justification to remove Trump can just as easily be applied to Joe Biden for his ‘insurrection’ at the southern border and his alleged corrupt family business dealings with China. Colorado radicals just changed the game and we are not going to sit quietly while they destroy our Republic.”

A few of McGarr’s colleagues noted their approval of his efforts. Representative Travis Grantham gave a one-word nod to the joint statement posted to the social media platform.

Representative Rachel Jones cheered on the announcement, stating, “My seatmate!!!”

Representative Alexander Kolodin weighed in, writing, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Guy Benson, a national political pundit and writer on Fox News and picked up on the news from the three legislators. He posted the following to his “X” account: “Here we go…GOP state lawmakers file legislation to remove Biden from the ballot in 3 states, claiming he’s guilty of aiding an ‘insurrection’ at the border & citing his family’s foreign business dealings. They explicitly say their goal is to ‘showcase the absurdity’ of Colorado.”

McGarr and his out-of-state colleagues ended their joint statement with their rationale for the future introduction of these bills. They said, “To be clear our objective is to showcase the absurdity of Colorado’s decision and allow ALL candidates to be on the ballot in all states. To do that, we must fight back as Republicans against the communists currently running our great country.”

The motivations for these bills may become moot, however, thanks to a surprising revelation from the Colorado Secretary of State on Thursday. Secretary of State Jena Griswold issued a statement to share that, with the appeal from the state’s Republican Party, “Donald Trump will be included as a candidate on January 5, 2024, unless the U.S. Supreme Court declines to take the case or otherwise affirms the Colorado Supreme Court ruling.” Griswold highlighted her belief that “Donald Trump engaged in insurrection and was disqualified under the Constitution from the Colorado Ballot.”

As the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office noted, January 5 is the “deadline for (the office) to certify the names and party affiliations of candidates on the 2024 Presidential Primary Ballot,” and it is also a conference day for the nation’s high court.
