Trump, Cruz, Sanders approved for N.H. primary ballots

White House hopefuls Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders are eligible to participate in New Hampshire's Feb. 9 primary, the state's Ballot Law Commission ruled Tuesday.

Trump and Cruz, both of whom are vying for the GOP nomination, and Sanders, a Democratic hopeful, faced separate challenges regarding their eligibility to participate in the Granite State's fast-approaching nominating contest.

In early November, New Hampshire resident Carmen Elliott filed a complaint with New Hampshire's secretary of state concerning Cruz's constitutional presidential eligibility.

According to his complaint, Elliott claimed Cruz is ineligible to be on the state's Republican primary ballot "because he is not a natural born citizen, as he was not born in the jurisdiction of the United States;" while the Texas senator was born in Canada, having an American mother granted Cruz U.S. citizenship at birth.
