ARIZONA: Donald Trump To Meet With Legislators Over Birther Bill

Tomorrow Donald Trump will meet with Arizona state legislators to discuss their pending bill which would require the submission of a birth certificate in order to be placed on the state presidential ballot.
Lawmakers in Arizona confirmed their plans to meet with Trump at his invitation, and Rep. Carl Seel, whose bill is one of those pending in the state legislature, said he was surprised and pleased to be invited to a meeting. Trump, who has been expressing his concerns about the absence of proof of Obama's eligibility for weeks, said on the "Today" show this morning there are "real doubts" about whether Obama was born in the U.S. His comments have placed the issue squarely in the middle of the 2012 presidential election race, and, meanwhile, his poll numbers – he's considering a bid for the GOP nomination – have soared to the point he's now trailing only Mitt Romney in some polls.
Twelve states are presently considering "birther ballot bills," with Arizona and Oklahoma closest to passage.
