ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump continued to question Canadian-born Senator Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for U.S. President at a campaign event in Farmingham, New Hampshire, where the issue of Viagra's fate was also raised by a member of the audience. When Trump said that drug-maker Pfizer was planning to leave the United States, a member of the audience shouted, "No more Viagra." Trump responded, "I didn't say it." He said, "If I said that it would be a headline tomorrow, 'Isn't that terrible.'" When a member of the audience shouted 'Punish Him," -- Trump pointed to the person who shouted it and said, "You are here by admonished." Trump also continued to raise questions about Cruz's eligibility to run for the Presidency. "You have got to speak the truth," Trump said. "The Canadian, the man from Canada.....he could run right now for Prime Minister of Canada, he'd have no problem." Under the Constitution, presidents must be "natural born citizens." Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, to an American mother. The latest Reuters-Ipsos tracking poll had Trump pulling in 40.6 percent support of Republican voters nationally. A CNN/ORC poll has Trump up in Iowa with 37 percent to 26 percent for Cruz, who has led in some other Iowa polls.
