    Michigan appeals court says Trump can be on GOP primary ballot – By Todd Spangler (Detroit Free Press) / Dec 14, 2023

    A three-judge state Court of Appeals panel on Thursday affirmed a lower court ruling saying neither the courts nor Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson can bar former President Donald Trump from being a candidate in Michigan’s Feb. 27 Republican primary.

    The panel also held that a lower court properly ruled that the Wayne County Election Commission isn’t barred from printing GOP primary ballots with Trump’s name on them.

    While another victory for Trump’s insistence that he be allowed to run as a candidate in Michigan, plaintiffs say the decisions are slated to be appealed to the Michigan Supreme Court for a final verdict, though even then parties could try to get the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in.
