The Atlantic reports that senior House Democrats signaled on Friday that they might not certify the 2024 election results in the event that former President Donald Trump is re-elected.

Amid oral arguments earlier this month concerning a Colorado ruling that deemed Trump ineligible for the ballot under the “insurrectionist ban” of the 14th Amendment, the Supreme Court appeared unconvinced that a single state should have the authority to remove him.

However, it remains uncertain whether the justices will directly address the eligibility question. While criticizing Republicans for their vote against certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 victory, a number of senior Democrats who spoke to The Atlantic reportedly left open the possibility that if the Supreme Court does not definitively rule on Trump’s eligibility, it will not certify his 2024 victory.

Democratic California Rep. Zoe Lofgren said that Trump was “clearly ineligible.”

However, Lofgren stated that she “could potentially” be one of the legislative bodies attempting to disqualify him.

Rep. Jim Clyburn, a Democrat from South Carolina, told the Atlantic that he considers Trump to be a insurrectionist.

Many Democrats are increasingly nervous about President’s Biden ability to triumph against Trump in 2024 in light of a series of consistently terrible polling numbers.
