New Hampshire Secretary of State David Scanlan (R) is exploring the possibility of disqualifying former President Donald Trump from the 2024 election ballot through the application of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. Scanlan is collaborating with the state’s attorney general to seek legal clarity on this matter. Anna Sventek, Scanlan’s communications director, stated that any action taken based on the Constitutional provision would require judicial guidance.
The idea of employing the 14th Amendment was raised by New Hampshire attorney Bryant Messner, who had Trump’s endorsement in the state’s 2020 Senate race. Messner is prepared to take legal action to ensure the enforcement of the 14th Amendment and sees it as a defense of the Constitution rather than a stance against Trump.

Scanlan acknowledged the seriousness of the January 6 events but refrained from defining them as an “insurrection.” He stated that determining this falls within the jurisdiction of the courts. The conversation surrounding disqualifying Trump from the 2024 election has gained traction, with legal experts invoking Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. This section is seen as operating independently of impeachment proceedings or criminal cases, targeting those who undermine the Constitution, even through non-violent means.
It is important to note that Trump’s popularity remains strong despite facing several criminal indictments in recent months. These indictments range from retaining classified documents to investigating alleged election fraud. Notably, the events of January 6, often described as an insurrection, are disputed, and Trump’s role in them is depicted as non-inciting. The debate about Trump’s potential disqualification continues, as legal minds and officials like Scanlan delve into the implications of the 14th Amendment in the context of presidential eligibility.
