March 01, 2016

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.

Similar suits have been filed in Indiana and New Hampshire, as have federal suits in Alabama, Arkansas, Utah, and Texas. Donald Trump has also openly questioned Cruz’s eligibility.  (WAND)
