79. Article argues lawsuits would lack standing under Article III, not the political question doctrine.
The author's central thesis is that any citizen bringing a suit in federal court challenging the eligibility of presidential candidates would lack standing under Article III to bring suit, because the suit would not be able to meet the case or controversy requirement. He also notes that the case may also be dismissed under the political question doctrine, but, that's not the author's central claim.
