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 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.

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.

CNN Fact Check: The $2,000 question

(CNN) - Elizabeth Warren, the White House consumer-protection adviser now running for a U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts, ripped into the tax plan put out by Mitt Romney, the state's former governor, at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night.

"He wants to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires," said Warren, a former Harvard law professor who served as the Senate watchdog over the 2008 bank bailout. "But for middle-class families who are hanging on by their fingernails? His plans will hammer them with a new tax hike of up to $2,000."

That's a lot of money to average folks, so let's take a closer look.

Five things we learned from Day Two of the DNC

(CNN) - While we learned that rising stars in the Democratic Party come in younger (Sandra Fluke) and older (Elizabeth Warren) versions, it was a party elder and established superstar (President Bill Clinton) who stole the show on Day Two of the Democratic convention.

Wednesday's session began amid controversy over language in the party's platform that saw a tumultuous voice vote. And another one. And another one. It's not the image Democrats wanted to project after a successful opening night.

Warren to take spotlight with big speech at Democratic convention

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (CNN) – For a first-time candidate in one of the tightest and most closely watched Senate races, there's no better spot to raise your profile than a prime-time speaking slot at the Democratic convention just before former President Bill Clinton takes the microphone.

But that's where Elizabeth Warren will find herself on Wednesday night, speaking as a major voice for the Democratic Party and embraced by its liberal base.

Wednesday night to feature Clinton, Warren

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton's convention speech Wednesday night may be rooted in the former president's own re-election bid from 1996, a time when Clinton pushed similar narratives as President Barack Obama's current campaign slogan to move the country "forward."

"There are some thematic echoes between the two presidents," a senior campaign official said while speaking with CNN reporters covering the convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
