Democratic gubernatorial candidate does not believe President Obama is American

LANSING (WKZO) -- A Democrat running for governor in Michigan is a rarity in his party, as he does not believe President Obama was born in the United States.

Speaking to reporters after a taping of the public television show "Off The Record," Mark McFarlin of Bay City admitted he didn't vote for Obama in 2008 or 2012 because of the issue.  McFarlin contends the fact that Obama's birth certificate from Hawaii lists his race as "African American" as his proof, arguing that the term wouldn't have been used in 1961.

Former Congressman Mark Schauer is considered the frontrunner in the Democratic gubernatorial race.
