Mike Huckabee: Cruz should go to court to settle the eligibility issue

“I didn’t think it was an issue until I started seeing extensive and thoroughly detailed articles from constitutional law professors with strong credibility saying that this is an issue,” Huckabee said. “I think Senator Cruz needs to settle it. The RNC has no business telling him that he should step aside because there’s a question. The issue is, answer the question. Settle it. Deal with it.”

After Burnett pointed out that going through the courts could take months and force Cruz to sacrifice the GOP nomination, Huckabee pivoted to the matter of his own airtight eligibility for the presidency.

“For me, it’s real simple,” he said. “I was born in Arkansas. We already have clearly established that you can be born in Hope, Arkansas, and be president of the United States.”
