Michigan: Dem Sec of State Slates Trump: Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) yesterday announced that she will award Donald Trump a ballot position on the Michigan primary ballot, unless a court decision directs otherwise. Ms. Benson stated that “…the courts and not secretaries of state should decide if the US Constitution disqualifies Trump.” The Michigan primary is scheduled for February 27, 2024. Presumably, she will also slate Mr. Trump in the general election, again barring a court ruling, should the former President win the Republican presidential nomination. Michigan is a critical swing state, so ensuring a ballot position here is a must for the Trump campaign.
