79. Requirement for POTUS eligibilty is in the Constitution

 

The Supremacy clause is clear....for a State to add requirement to being eligible Would violate that clause.

ArtII clearly says.....
"The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

Each State SHALL(not May) appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector."

If a State were to try to block a duly nominated POTUS nominee for lack of disclosure of Tax returns....SCOTUS would be 8-1, 9-0 ruling it Unconstitutional.

What would stop Red States from blocking Sec. Clinton for not disclosing all the emails they wanted..President Obama in his runs for no college transcripts, Sanders and his taxes...any reason to keep a Democratic nominee off the ballot in those States?
Won't happen.
