Elizabeth Warren fights back calls to take DNA test over Native American heritage claims

Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to take a DNA test to end doubt about having Native American blood grabbed the national spotlight Sunday.

An editorial this month in Massachusetts's Berkshire Eagle urged Warren to buy a DNA test for $99 to resolve the issue once and for all. She responded by telling the story she has told before about her family history, i.e. her father's family was opposed to him marrying her mother because she was part Native American. Warren is sticking to the story she was told, but that doesn't make it true. "I'm not running for president", she said, while sidestepping four attempts by moderator Chuck Todd to pin her down on whether she will pledge to serve out another six-year Senate term.

In an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press", the Massachusetts Senator shut down requests to prove her Native American roots.

Just hours before she died, she gave an interview to Fox 11 , speaking alongside Sister Rita Callanan . It sparked months of litigation and highlighted the conflict between the nuns and archdiocese.

"I'm not running for president", Warren said, adding that she stands by her identification as someone of Native American heritage. "I'm not running for president".

However, Warren's reflection of her heritage remains based on what she was told by her parents.

"So look, I am not running for president of the United States", Warren said, per the Boston Globe.

The election season blunted growth in Kenya, East Africa's richest economy and a Western ally in a volatile region. About 150 people were killed in the aftermath of the election, which Mr Kenyatta won after an opposition boycott.

Warren also said that she respects the distinction between heritage and citizenship and "that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes".

"Only Elizabeth Warren can answer why she assumed a Native American identity as she was climbing the career ladder in academia", Lindstrom said. Rob Gray, a Republican political analyst, said the criticism could hurt Warren more if it came from a rival Democrat.

The speech was a clear attempt to put the controversy around her claims of heritage to rest and potentially another sign of 2020 presidential ambitions. Or, at least, that's what she wants us to believe. "Never used it for anything".

The state Veterans Affairs department says it is the largest veterans' home in the United States, with about 1,000 residents. Thornton said she was anxious about how her dad's coping with the stress, considering his age, PTSD and slight dementia.

Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried, who helped recruit Warren, has called any suggestion she enjoyed an affirmative-action benefit "nonsense". The issue not only hangs over Warren's Senate reelection campaign, but is all but certain to be a focus should the two face off in the presidential election campaign.
