Rand Paul On Cruz's Presidential Eligibility: "I Decided A Long Time Ago I Wouldn't Be A Birther"

ERIN BURNETT: Now we're three years away from the presidential election, right? Obviously, I know you've talked about it. You are talking to your family and making your final decision. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas already made two trips to Iowa. You know this whole situation, right? He was born in Canada to a mother who was from Delaware so she was a natural born American and a father born in Cuba at the time. So, the law, we looked into it, says he should be eligible to run for president. Do you agree?

SEN. RAND PAUL: You won't find me questioning his eligibility. I decided a long time ago I wouldn't be a birther. I'm not a birther for Democrats. I'm not a birther for Republicans. I'm staying out of that.

BURNETT: That's a smart move.

PAUL: I'm saying out of that one.
