Broward County Judge Tosses Cruz and Rubio Eligibility Case

Although Florida media reported that Senator Marco Rubio’s parents were not US citizens when he was born, national media has largely avoided the topic.   Senator Ted Cruz’s status as a natural born Canadian and a number of related eligibility lawsuits were underreported nationally, until news hit that an IL judge was hearing one of the cases.  

Cruz’s lawsuits were filed in Florida, Vermont, Texas, Utah, Illinois, Arkansas, Alabama, New York, and Pennsylvania, and individuals who raised a ballot challenge in Indiana are weighing whether they’ll file suit.  

On Friday a Broward County judge tossed the eligibility case seeking to remove Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz from the Florida ballot.
The Sun Sentinel reported:

Broward judge dismissed a case that alleged GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were ineligible to run for president based on their citizenship.

Judge John Bowman told the plaintiff, Michael Voeltz, that he lacked standing in filing the case seeking to get Rubio and Cruz removed from the Florida March 15 primary ballot.
