(Springfield, IL) (AP) Donald Trump will remain on the Illinois Primary ballot. The state’s election board of four Democrats and four Republicans unanimously declined to remove him on Tuesday, despite a recommendation to do so from a retired Illinois judge. Illinois is among several states where Trump critics have pushed to remove him from the ballot for violating a constitutional ban on office-holders who “engaged in insurrection,” despite the former President not being convicted of any insurrection charges. The U.S. Supreme Court next week hears arguments on a similar case in Colorado.
