Tea Party favorite to renounce his citizenship


His Canadian citizenship, that is.

A Republican senator from Texas, who’s thought to harbor White House ambitions, issued the statement late Monday.

“Now the Dallas Morning News says that I may technically have dual citizenship,” Ted Cruz said. “Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship. Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator. I believe I should be only an American.”

Cruz released his birth certificate to the Morning News. He was born to an American in Canada in 1970.
