Warren, Brown Debate in Massachusetts

Attack each other's records


Republican incumbent Scott Brown criticized Democrat Elizabeth Warren for withholding records that might show she claimed Native American ancestry in job applications, while she assailed him for supporting billionaires and opposing legislation to create new jobs, in their first debate in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts.

Warren pounded Brown over his record, including his opposition to a bill to provide equal pay for women doing the same work as men. Brown portrayed Warren as eager to tax job- creating businesses while collecting a six-figure income as a Harvard Law professor. Both sought to stay on the offensive last night, lobbing broadsides at each other while trying to deflect criticism.
