A liberal activist group based in Washington, D.C., that claims to want to "shore up our democracy against attacks" is working to keep President Joe Biden's top rival off the ballot in Colorado for the 2024 election.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a group that has been called a "lapdog to left-leaning politicians" and has sought to hamstring former President Donald Trump since 2016, filed a lawsuit Wednesday in Denver District Court on behalf of six purported Republican and unaffiliated Colorado voters. The suit demands that Trump be removed from the GOP primary ballot and "any future election ballot" for supposedly having "disqualified himself from public office by violating Section 3 of the 14th Amendment."

CREW alleged in a statement that Trump, now leading Biden in CNN's latest general election poll, violated his oath to preserve and defend the Constitution "by recruiting, inciting and encouraging a violent mob that attacked the Capitol on January 6, 2021 in a futile attempt to remain in office."
