A lawsuit seeking to remove former President Donald Trump from the ballot in Wyoming was dismissed by a judge, citing Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment.
The complaint also targeted Sen. Cynthia Lummis, but the lawsuit was deemed “outrageously wrong and repugnant” by the Wyoming Secretary of State.

Trump’s team has challenged rulings in both states, and the cases are pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I am extremely pleased with Judge Westby’s decision to dismiss Mr. Newcomb’s outrageously wrong and repugnant lawsuit to remove Donald Trump and Cynthia Lummis from the ballot in Wyoming,” Wyoming Secretary of State Chuck Gray said.
“I have been working to make sure that Donald Trump will be able to be on the ballot, and I am happy our motion to dismiss this lawsuit was granted,” he said. “I will continue to fight against this nationwide effort in order to protect the integrity of our elections and ensure that the people of Wyoming can choose who to elect for themselves.”
The dismissal was welcomed by Lummis, who called the lawsuit frivolous and an attack on voters’ freedom.
“Efforts to remove candidates from the ballot are a direct attack on the freedom of voters to choose their elected officials and undermines the integrity of our elections,” Lummis said.
