The Maine Superior Courts have issued a stay, deferring a decision until the U.S. Supreme Court decides.

Earlier this month, President Trump appealed the ruling that would have seen him removed from the primary ballot.

Now, it is up to the Supreme Court to decide.

The Maine Superior Court issued a stay of the secretary of state’s decision to remove former President Donald Trump from the state’s Republican primary ballot pending a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump appealed Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows’ ruling earlier this month, but the court on Wednesday said it will not consider the matter until the high court issues its own decision in a related case out of Colorado, saying it would be “imprudent” for the court to rule on it before then.

The court denied Trump’s motion to “supplement the record” and denied his motion to “stay proceedings,” but also “stays the secretary of state’s ruling, pending the decision by the Supreme Court.”

The court remanded the matter to the secretary “for further proceedings as necessary in light of the United States Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision in Trump v. Anderson.”

“As part of this remand, the secretary is ordered to await the Supreme Court’s decision in Anderson, and no later than thirty days after Anderson’s issuance, to issue a new Ruling modifying, withdrawing, or confirming her prior Ruling dated December 28, 2023,” the court ruled.

This is great news for President Trump!

We are one step closer to having these ridiculous bans removed entirely.

More from ABC News:

Bellows, a Democrat, on Dec. 28 ruled Trump ineligible to be on the state’s 2024 primary ballot because of actions surrounding the violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, finding that he violated Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

She found that the rioting was carried out “at the behest of, and with the knowledge and support of” Trump, which he has consistently rejected.

Her order upheld challenges from three Maine politicians and a resident of the state: former Portland Mayor Ethan Strimling; former state Sens. Kim Rosen, a Republican, and Tom Saviello, who is a former Republican turned independent; and resident Mary-Anne Royal, all of whom argued the former president was ineligible under Section 3.

“Ultimately, we’re happy with the Court’s decision to leave the Secretary’s ruling intact: that Trump is an insurrectionist and that the 14th amendment applies. We’ll decide next steps soon,” Strimling said in a statement.

It is still baffling that so many Democrats are brainwashed into believing:

1.) January 6th was an insurrection

2.) President Trump incited the alleged insurrection
