Obama birth issue raised by 3 Arizona electors

PHOENIX (AP) -

Controversy over President Barack Obama's eligibility to be president surfaced anew Monday during a ceremony to record Arizona's Electoral College votes for president.

All 11 Arizona electors cast their votes for defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who won the state's popular vote.

The state Republican Party chairman and two other Electoral College members spoke up during the ceremony to voice doubts about Obama's eligibility as a native-born U.S. citizen.

Hawaii officials have certified that Obama was born in that state.
