WARREN: “As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage -- what kid would? 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 and never received any benefit because of my heritage. The people who’ve hired me have said they didn’t even know about it. I’m Elizabeth Warren and I approved this message. Scott Brown can continue attacking my family, but I’m going to keep fighting for yours.”
