DeFranco recently criticized Warren’s response to the Native American ancestry flap and made a case that her own campaign wouldn’t be distracted by side issues:

DeFranco said she believes the fact that the controversy over Warren’s heritage has lasted for three works shows a problem with Warren’s campaign. “We need a Democratic nominee who’s able to define herself first and foremost before the Republican GOP machine comes after you and defines the candidate for her,” DeFranco said. “I will not let Scott Brown define me.” 

DeFranco said she was not taking a position on Warren’s listing of her heritage as Native American, or on what the Warren campaign’s response should have been.
