McCain to Brewer: You Did Right on Birther Bill

Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer’s decision to veto a bill requiring all candidates running for office in Arizona to provide a copy of their birth certificate alienated some conservatives, who want to see President Barack Obama’s certificate. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., isn’t one of them, The Hill reports.

Suspicions about the place of Obama’s birth inspired the Arizona bill. In 2008, McCain's presidential campaign looked into "birther" claims against Obama and found them to be baseless. Last year McCain ran a campaign ad against his primary opponent J.D. Hayworth, connecting him to top figures in the "birther" movement.
