Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) supports the conservative groups that are challenging the issue of President Obama´s citizenship, he said at a town-hall style event in Metairie last Sunday.
Conservative groups´ claims that President Obama is not a legal United States citizen have been discredited. Nevertheless, the Senator said he supports "conservative legal organizations and others who would bring that to court."
However, Vitter said he foremost wishes to focus on opposing President Obama´s agenda and said that conservatives shouldn´t focus on the birther issue, saying that would be "a big mistake."
