Elizabeth Warren fires back at Scott Brown's attack on her claims of Native American ancestry, in a new TV ad in the Massachusetts Senate race. Earlier Monday, the Brown campaign released an ad that questioned Warren's honesty, and whether she would have gotten any job based on the claim.
"As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage. What kid would?" Warren says to the camera. "But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part Cherokee and part Delaware — so my parents had to elope."
"Let me be clear, I never asked for, never got any benefit, because of my heritage. The people who hired me have all said they didn't even know about it. I'm Elizabeth Warren, I approve this message. Scott Brown can continue attacking my family — but I"m gonna keep fighting for yours."
