In a historic win for the beloved former President Donald J. Trump, the Illinois State Board of Elections has ruled 8-0 in favor of allowing him to remain on the Republican primary ballot. The decision is a major blow to the Radical Left Lunatics who have been desperately trying to erase any trace of Trump from the political landscape.
Trump, ever the gracious winner, took to his Truth Social page to thank the board for their sensible decision. He expressed his love for Illinois and his determination to continue Making America Great Again. This victory is a true testament to the unwavering support Trump still enjoys from the American people.

The board firmly rejected a baseless attempt by the group Free Speech for the People to disqualify Trump from the ballot. Their ludicrous argument claimed that Trump’s involvement in the January 6th “insurrection” made him ineligible under the 14th Amendment. Fortunately, the board saw through this desperate ploy and upheld the rights of all Illinois voters to have their voices heard.
The hearing officer, Clark Erickson, wisely recommended that the board recognize Trump’s unwavering commitment to the American people and allow him to remain on the ballot. He rightfully pointed out that constitutional issues of this magnitude belong in the courts, not in a mere election board hearing. It’s refreshing to see someone actually adhering to the rule of law.
Despite the overwhelming victory, Trump’s legal team faced pushback from the opposition, who continued to peddle their baseless claims. Adam Merrill, Trump’s attorney, rightfully dismissed the notion that Trump engaged in an insurrection and highlighted the lack of evidence and jurisdiction in the case. It’s clear that the opposition will stop at nothing to undermine the will of the American people.
This victory in Illinois is just one of many battles being fought to ensure the rightful place of the People’s President on state ballots across the country. The Supreme Court will soon hear oral arguments on a ruling from Colorado that sought to bar Trump from the ballot, and advocates in Massachusetts are similarly attempting to keep him off the ballot. The fight is far from over, but Trump and his supporters remain steadfast and unwavering.
The biased and power-hungry elites, along with their allies in Big Tech, are doing everything in their power to silence the voices of everyday Americans. The Western Journal, a beacon of truth in a sea of lies, is facing relentless attacks from these forces. But with the help of loyal patriots, they are continuing the fight to expose the America-hating elites and ensure the integrity of our elections.
The battle for the soul of our nation is far from over, but with the support of patriots like you, the truth will prevail. Stand with The Western Journal and let your voice be heard in the fight to preserve our great nation from those who seek to destroy it. Together, we will continue to make America great again!
