Brown uses Warren's heritage issue in T.V. spot

(CNN) – Questions over Elizabeth Warren's claims of Native American heritage were revived by her rival for U.S. Senate Monday in a television ad characterizing Warren as untrustworthy.

Sen. Scott Brown, locked in a tight battle with Warren in Massachusetts, also used the topic to attack Warren at a debate last week. He asserts Warren used Native American heritage to help her chances of being hired by Harvard Law School as a professor.

However, according to a CNN/ORC International poll taken just after the Democratic National Convention, President Barack Obama has a 25 point 59%-34% advantage among likely voters over Republican nominee Mitt Romney when asked which candidate is more likely to win the debates.

Adviser: Romney to do more campaign events 'hopefully soon'

(CNN) - While Mitt Romney said he expects his fundraising calendar to be "a little quieter," a senior campaign adviser sounded less certain Monday about taking donor meetings off the Republican nominee's itinerary in the near future.

"We're going to reach a point here–hopefully soon–where we'll have the resources we need to carry us through Nov. 6 and we don't need to be doing those finance events," Ed Gillespie said on a conference call with reporters.

Obama says campaign goes 'overboard'

(CNN) – Mitt Romney's campaign took President Barack Obama to task Sunday night for a comment the president made in a CBS News interview that is posted online but did not air on the network's broadcasts.

"You know, do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, the mistakes that are made, or the areas where there's no doubt that somebody could dispute how we are presenting things?" Obama said in a "60 Minutes" interview. "That happens in politics."
