Are Mel Martinez and Lincoln Diaz-Balart backing a "birther"?

The Washington Post blogs that Ben Loyola, a Cuban-American who has been endorsed by Mel Martinez and Lincoln Diaz-Balart, said in an interview posted on the blog Bearing Drift that he is not sure President Obama was born in the United States.

"When asked if Obama was a 'natural born United States citizen,' Loyola responded 'I'm not sure, and that troubles me.'

"Read the full interview. The interview from Va Blogger of Too Conservative was conducted in August 2009, but just posted online today. Loyola is one of several Republicans competing in a congressional district primary in the Hampton Roads area to run against Democrat Rep. Glenn Nye.

Loyola spokesman Joshua Clark told the Post that the answers were accurate -- "and that he answered that way because he doesn't know whether the president was born in the United States or not."
