CHICAGO – A judge has tossed out a claim that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz isn’t eligible to run for president because he was born in Canada.
Cook County Judge Maureen Ward Kirby dismissed the case on a technicality. She says the attorney who filed the complaint failed to provide a copy of it to Cruz or state electoral board members, as required by Illinois state law.
Joyce says Cruz isn’t eligible for the president because he isn’t a natural-born citizen of the United States.
