WASHINGTON (Talk Media News) – Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) declined to defend his colleague Ted Cruz’ (R-Texas) eligibility to be President on Thursday.
“I think there is a question,” McCain said on Phoenix, Arizona radio program The Chris Merrill Show.
Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father. The location has sprung concerns over whether Cruz would or would not be considered a natural born citizen as required for the Presidency under the Constitution.
McCain, who has butted heads with Cruz in the upper chamber many times, stressed that there was a difference from questions surrounding his eligibility. McCain was born on a U.S. military base in Panama, a situation that McCain described as “different from being born on foreign soil.”
