Another State Rejects Birther Attacks On Cruz

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz can breathe a sigh of relief. A New Jersey judge says the Canadian-born senator is indeed an American and can run in the New Jersey primary in June.
The judge said, "The more persuasive legal analysis is that such a child, born of a citizen-father, citizen-mother, or both, is indeed a 'natural born citizen.'" And that would include Cruz.
A group of Jersey residents contested Cruz's candidacy, saying because he was born in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father, he's ineligible to run for president. Similar cases have been thrown out in Illinois and New York.
