President Trump is celebrating another victory as the New Mexico courts dismiss a lawsuit that hoped to remove President Trump from the primary ballots.
This is the same type of case that many courts have considered nationwide.
Colorado and New York are the most famous for removing President Trump from the primary ballot.
The reasoning is that President Trump allegedly incited an insurrection on January 6th, 2020.
The claims are ridiculous, as no courts have ruled that such happened.

More from KRQE News:
The lawsuit in New Mexico essentially mirrored those filed in other states alleging that because of Trump’s role in the January 6th insurrection, he should not be allowed to run for reelection. Many of the lawsuits in other states have already been dismissed.
In New Mexico, U.S. District Judge Matthew Garcia issued a judgment noting that there’s not enough evidence to show that the Texas-based Republican, John Anthony Castro, is a legitimate political competitor to Trump, so the entire case is dismissed. The case is dismissed “without prejudice,” meaning the plaintiff, Castro, can refile the lawsuit.
Castro has chosen to appeal the case. Castro has filed similar lawsuits in other states. While Castro manages the various lawsuits, he is also facing accusations that he prepared false tax returns.
