LGN Represents Bipartisan Group Challenging Trump’s Eligibility for 2024 Ballot

Along with Free Speech For People, LGN represents a group of prominent Minnesota voters who have filed a petition to keep former president Donald Trump off the 2024 ballot in the state because of his role in the insurrection on January 6, 2021.
