At CPAC last week, blogger-activist Mike Stark caught up with Dr. Eric Wargotz, one of Maryland’s Republican candidates for U.S. Senate. Stark asked Wargotz — who described himself as the presumptive GOP nominee — if he thinks President Obama should be impeached. “Not at this point, but I think the birth issue is still out there,” Wargotz replied. The GOP senate candidate later stated definitively that he believes the President was not born in the U.S.:

WARGOTZ: What I understand about [Obama’s] upbringing and his background is he grew up in a system very different than the American culture. And so I think his tendencies are to more socialist tendencies than capitalist society and free market society we have today. [...]

STARK: Do you believe Barack Obama was born in the United States or not?

WARGOTZ: No, I do not believe he was born in the United States.
