Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose biggest campaign controversy was over claims about her Native American heritage, will not be identified as a minority in the Senate Historical Office's official directory.
The Boston Herald's Hillary Chabot repeatedly pressed Warren during her campaign against then-Sen. Scott Brown (R) for claiming minority status as a Harvard professor without proof she is 1/16th Cherokee.
A Senate historian told the Herald that Warren would be added to the directory if she requested to identify herself as a Native American in her official biography.
Warren's Senate freshman class includes several minorities, including Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), the sixth Asian American senator, Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), the eighth Hispanic American, and Tim Scott, the seventh African American.
