Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts refused to tell CNN's Dana Bash that she's a minority, despite the fact that the Democratic Senate candidate was once listed as a Native American at Harvard, where she is a law professor. The Free Beacon has CNN's video:
BASH: Harvard administrators say they didn’t know Warren claimed Native American heritage before hiring her. It’s still raw. Warren bristles when asked if she considers herself a minority.
BASH: So you don’t want to put a label on it?
WARREN: Nope. This is part of who I am. This is who I am.
Warren has cited family lore as evidence of her Native American heritage, though there has been no genealogical evidence that her ancestors were Cherokees.
