Brown declines Kennedy debate invite

(CNN) – Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts declined an invitation from the Edward M. Kennedy Institute to debate his rival, Democrat Elizabeth Warren, citing Vicki Kennedy's plan to endorse Warren.

"We respect Vicki Kennedy's decision but we regret that we cannot accept a debate invitation from someone who plans to endorse Scott Brown's opponent," Brown's campaign manager Jim Barnett said in a statement Tuesday. "The Kennedy Institute cannot hold itself out as a nonpartisan debate sponsor while the president of its board of trustees gets involved in the race on behalf of one of the candidates."

Dead heat in Mass. Senate race as ads crank up

(CNN) – The contenders for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts both released new television ads Monday, with Republican Sen. Scott Brown placing the focus on his family background and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren highlighting economic problems that she worked to solve as a consumer advocate.

The new ads come after nearly a month in which the Massachusetts race was consumed with the question of Warren's ethnic background. After Boston newspapers reported Warren was listed as Native American in law school directories in the 1990s, Brown's campaign questioned her intentions and pushed her to disclose more information.

Warren secures spot on November ballot, avoiding primary

(CNN) - Democrat Elizabeth Warren won her party’s nomination Saturday for a U.S. Senate seat out of Massachusetts, avoiding a primary and advancing directly to the November general election against incumbent Sen. Scott Brown.

No Senate candidate has ever avoided such a vote in Democratic Party history, the party election committee said, a feat which requires receiving the support of more than 85% of state party convention delegates.

Who's a Native American? It's complicated

(CNN) – The recent controversy over Massachusetts congressional candidate Elizabeth Warren's Native American ancestry, where the campaign of her opponent for a senate seat called for her to release documents claiming her Cherokee ancestry, has caused some to ask: What makes someone "legitimately" Native American? And who gets to make that determination?

"Fundamentally, it's the tribe’s right to determine who its citizens are and are not. If we don't know (whether someone is American Indian), we can ask the tribe," said Julia Good Fox, professor of American Indian Studies at Haskell Indian Nations University.

Brown continues offense on Warren over Native American claims

(CNN) – Republican Sen. Scott Brown, who's running to keep his seat representing Massachusetts, on Tuesday called for Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to release confidential documents to show whether or not she claimed her Native American roots on job applications.

"The best way to satisfy these questions is for Elizabeth Warren to authorize the release of her law school applications and all personnel files from the various universities where she has taught," Brown said in a statement.
