Maine Governor Paul LePage: I know Cruz Is Ineligible; My Daughters Had to be Naturalized
Maine Governor Paul LePage told radio host Howie Carr he believes Ted Cruz is ineligible to run for president. LePage said he has two daughters who had to be naturalized after being born in Canada.
Maine Gov. Paul LePage said Thursday that he doesn’t believe Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% is eligible to become president.
From the Huffington Post:
LePage told radio host Howie Carr that his two daughters were born in Canada, and they had to be naturalized as U.S. citizens even though he was born in America.
“So I have a question there,”LePage said.
Cruz was also born in Canada, but he maintains that he fits the constitutional requirement that a president be a “natural born citizen” because his mother was born in America.
