A Republican National committeewoman from Nevada just proposed that not only is Cruz not eligible to be president, but GOP rival Marco Rubio isn't either.
Cruz's Canadian birthplace has been dragged through the press relentlessly over the last few weeks, but Rubio's birth to immigrant parents hasn't been discussed as much. Enter Diana Orrock, who not only serves the RNC, but is running for the Nevada state assembly.
She tweeted a link to an article by Devvy Kidd on conservative website News With Views. Kidd contends that because Rubio's parents were born elsewhere and weren't naturalized as citizens until he was four years old, he cannot run for the nation's highest office.

Incoming! DUCK AND COVER!!!
This proves that Trump is a liberal.
All right then, it’s Trump.
Hope he’s working for us!
Cruz could have been born on the Moon on live television and he’d still be eligible.
Rubio was born here. ‘nuff said.
LOL, that was my first thought too. Of course, you know, the Cruzbots know more than anyone else on this matter. Mark Levin told them so.
I don’t have an issue with this, not for either one of them, and I cannot frickin’ stand Marcobot.
But apparently this is going to be an issue ;/
If the RNC has that much concern about their frontrunners they should have the question decided definitively. Idle chatter just serves to damage campaigns. I’ve never seen a political party put so much effort into sabotaging its front-running candidates?!
Jindal, Cruz, Rubio and Haley are all ineligible.
The bench was the reason the GOP would not oppose The Usurper
what was her position on Obama’a eligibility?
This should be a fun thread.
I’m not sure the RNC will allow trump to stand as the nominee.
You all may want to get out early.
I posed this before also. What are differences between citizen, naturalized citizen, and natural born citizen?
Trump will be doing everyone a big favor if he quits talking about suing Cruz and actually DOES it.
One is NATURALLY a US citizen when one cannot possibly be anything else.
Born here of citizen parents.
Natural born citizen.
Bush must be getting desperate. I guess sales of guacamole bowls are trending down...
LOL ! Yeah, Levin is a lawyer and all, so his word is gospel ... damn the law and facts ...let’s see what Trump’s lawyers can do with this ..Trump has an excellent legal team and Trump wouldn’t have even mentioned it if it was such a non-starter, as the Cruz-bots claim
