Hawaii provides ‘verification of the president’s birth’ to Arizona

A nearly three-month-long tussle between two states over President Obama’s birth records may be at an end.

The state of Hawaii said late Tuesday it has provided verification of the president’s birth to Arizona’s secretary of state, who claimed he needed proof of Obama’s citizenship before he could place his name on the state’s November ballot.

Wisch said Hawaii got the necessary proof, so it sent Bennett’s office the verification.
