The state's 11 Republican electors formally cast their ballots today for Mitt Romney -- but not before three of them said questions remain about whether Barack Obama was born in this country.

A new campaign ad for Mitt Romney features his Spanish-speaking son. The spot highlights Romney’s family ties to Mexico.

Craig Romney talks about his grandfather George, who was born in Chihuahua, Mexico.

The Romney family fled to Mexico in the 1880s to avoid anti-polygamy laws. In a January interview with Univision, Mitt Romney said it would be “disingenuous” of him to claim Mexican heritage. So why shine a light on those connections now?

Secretary of State Ken Bennett said today he will not verify the birth records of Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, at least not now -- and possibly not ever -- despite an earlier public commitment to do so.

A 2010 comment by Ken Bennett when he was running for secretary of state may be coming back to haunt him. 

During a debate in the 2010 race, Bennett was asked about endorsing something on that year's ballot.

"It's not appropriate for election officials to be taking positions on either the propositions or candidates when we're going to have to conduct the election," he said. 

Romney May Already Be Leading the AZ Results

Feb 27, 2012

The presidential primary is not until Tuesday. But a new survey suggests the results may already be in.

A survey of 515 likely Republican voters on Sunday by Public Policy Polling found Mitt Romney with a 43-26 percent lead over Rick Santorum, with Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul even farther behind. Potentially more significant, almost half of those questioned had already cast early ballots, with Romney having a nearly 2-1 advantage over Santorum among that group. And Romney leads even among those who are waiting until the last minute.
