Following Thursday's Supreme Court oral arguments, Norma Anderson has a plain message to the Republican Party of which Donald Trump is the overwhelming 2024 frontrunner.

“They better sit down and read their Constitution. That’s the best message I can give them,” Anderson told CNN.

Anderson, 91, the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit seeking to remove Trump from the ballot based on his role in the January 6, 2021, riot, said protecting democracy starts by electing the right people.

“I remember World War II, and I remember everyone in the United States pulled together to protect our democracy. We’re not doing that now. Democracy is precious. It doesn’t last, unless you take care of it,” Anderson said. “Taking care of it is electing correct people. Not people that want to throw out an election. That’s what other countries do. That’s not what we do.”

Being thrust into the spotlight in recent months, Anderson — a former Republican lawmaker in Colorado who has already broken barriers — said what compelled her to be part of this case is to protect the freedoms of the United States, especially as a grandmother.

“I've lived in a free country, and I visited countries that are not free. And I don't want to be like them, Anderson said.

"I want to keep our democracy and our freedom. It's very important to me ... I've got 14 grandchildren, two great grandchildren," she added. "Pardon me, I want them to have a good country to live in."
