Inside Politics: Pro-Romney group to buy ads in nine states
Question of the Day
NEW YORK — An independent group backing Republican Mitt Romney is spending nearly $4 million on ads in nine battleground states.
An organization that tracks TV spending by political campaigns says the Romney-aligned Restore Our Future has bought television ad time in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia and New Hampshire.
The pro-Romney group was by far the biggest advertiser during the Republican presidential primary, spending more than $53 million on ads attacking Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich after each one emerged at different points as Romney’s chief conservative rival.
News of the Restore Our Future buy first appeared in Politico. A spokesman for the group declined to comment.
Senate hopeful explains school heritage listing
BRAINTREE — The leading Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in Massachusetts says she listed herself as having Native American heritage in law school directories because she hoped to meet people with similar roots.
Harvard Law School professor Elizabeth Warren said Wednesday she never tried to use minority status to get teaching jobs and criticized Republican Sen. Scott P. Brown’s campaign for suggesting that may have been the case.
The Boston Herald reported on Mrs. Warren’s remarks, which came during a campaign stop in Braintree.
The Oklahoma native has said she’s proud of her family ties to Cherokee and Delaware tribes — a heritage she said she learned through stories passed down from older family members.
A Massachusetts genealogist uncovered evidence that Mrs. Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother had listed herself as Cherokee in an 1894 document.
