Court Of Appeals Nixes Cruz Primary Appeal

Casey Seiler reports in the Times Union:

“Without comment, the state Court of Appeals on Friday refused to hear an appeal in a legal challenge to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s status as a “natural born” American citizen.

The complaint, dated Feb. 16 and received by the state Board of Elections the next day, does not contest that Cruz is a U.S. citizen and therefore eligible to serve in Congress. His mother was a U.S. citizen when Cruz was born in 1970 in Calgary, which conferred U.S. citizenship on him. (Cruz’s father was at the time a Cuban citizen.)”
