senator john mccain, who faced similar questions in 2008 because he was born on a u.s. military base in panama, expressed doubts. arizona i think there is a question. i am not a constitutional scholar on that but i think it's worth looking into.even the white house commented. it would be quite ironic if, after seven or eight years of drama around the president's birth certificate, republican primary voters were to choose senator cruz as their nominee -- somebody who actually wasn't born in the united states.in washington, dianne gallagher reporting. ted cruz had dual-citizenship up his after winning a senate seat in texas. another presidential candidate is getting some help from a former president... its wonderful to be back here i most remarkable rallies of the 1992 presidential campaign bill clinton finished third in
