Brown, Warren spar in second debate

(CNN) – In their second debate in the Massachusetts Senate race, Republican Sen. Scott Brown on Monday sought to cement his image as an independent fighter, while Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren attempted to tie the senator to the conservative base of the Republican Party.

"I vote about 50 percent with my party and about 50 percent with the Democratic Party," Brown said at the debate, held at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. "That's a lot different than what Professor Warren would do."

Brown doesn't 'condone' staffers' actions

(CNN) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown, engaged in one of the nation's closest battles for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, said Tuesday he does not condone the offensive gestures and sounds some of his staffers made at a rally this week.

The Brown staffers were captured on video making "war whoops" and "tomahawk chops," an apparent reference to the controversy surrounding Warren's claim to Native American heritage during her time as a professor at Harvard Law School. Both Brown and Warren released television spots Monday on the topic.

Warren responds to criticism over heritage in ad

(CNN) – The same day her rival hammered her in a political ad for her claims to Native American heritage, Elizabeth Warren fired back in an ad of her own, saying Sen. Scott Brown was attacking her family.

"As a kid, I never asked my mom for documentation when she talked about our Native American heritage," Warren says in the spot. "What kid would? But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part Cherokee and part Delaware, so they had to elope."

Brown hits Warren over claim of Native American heritage in first debate

(CNN) – The candidates were quick to attack Thursday night in their first debate as they vie for a U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts, delivering pointed barbs on their opponent’s character and record.

Republican Scott Brown pounced on the first question in the hour-long event moderated by WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller – a question about a candidate's character. Brown seized the opportunity to tear into Democrat Elizabeth Warren for a comment that has been a drag on her campaign since last spring for claiming Native American heritage–a claim Brown says could have helped her gain employment as a professor at Harvard Law School.
