Four States Decide to Have Only Joe Biden on Democrat Primary Ballot

In a shocking turn of events, the Democratic primaries in four states, namely Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Massachusetts, have decided to feature only one option for voters—Joe Biden. This unilateral decision effectively positions Biden as the Democratic nominee in these states without any competition in the primaries. However, this move has sparked accusations of disenfranchisement and raised serious questions about the democratic process within the party.

Critics argue that the Democratic Party itself poses a greater threat to democracy than Donald Trump. They raise concerns that the party is effectively allowing the communist party to decide the Democratic nominee and ultimately control who occupies the White House.

The Florida Democratic Executive Committee recently made the announcement that the upcoming primary elections in the state will only feature the name of Joe Biden on the ballot, effectively shutting out any potential challengers from within the party. This development signifies a departure from traditional election practices, as the ballot will not accommodate write-in candidates either.

The decision by the Florida Democratic Party to include only Joe Biden’s name on the ballot has resulted in a federal lawsuit led by Tampa attorney Michael Steinberg. The lawsuit alleges a violation of constitutional rights due to the exclusion of other Democratic candidates, particularly Minnesota Congressman Dean Phillips.

Similar decisions have been made in Tennessee and North Carolina, where only Biden’s name will appear on the ballot. Tennessee authorities clarified that Democratic candidate Dean Phillips did not satisfy the requirements to gain ballot access via the petition process. Meanwhile, the North Carolina Democratic Party has declined to allow any challengers onto the ballot for the upcoming elections. Tommy Mattocks, a spokesman for the North Carolina Democratic Party, defended the decision, stating that Biden was the only candidate who had actively campaigned in the state.

Massachusetts has also echoed similar sentiments, with the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s decision to only include President Joe Biden’s name on the state’s Super Tuesday presidential primary ballot drawing criticism from figures like Marianne Williamson. She accused the Democratic Party of robbing Massachusetts Democrats of their voice and choice in the upcoming election.

These decisions have also triggered backlash from within the Democratic Party itself. “The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur, a Democratic presidential candidate, publicly criticized the exclusions, calling for a fair and inclusive primary process. He argued that the actions of these state Democratic parties are undermining the democratic voice of the voters.

As a result, the exclusions have prompted widespread debate and criticism, underscoring the vital importance of promoting fair and democratic practices within the party’s primary processes. The controversy surrounding the unilateral decision to feature only Joe Biden on these primary ballots continues to generate intense debate and scrutiny.
