More 2012: Massachusetts heats up

MASSACHUSETTS: The Boston Herald reports: Fending off questions about whether she used her Native American heritage to advance her career, Elizabeth Warren said yesterday she enrolled as a minority in law school directories for nearly a decade because she hoped to meet others with tribal roots. “I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group, something that might happen with people who are like I am,” Warren said. “Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off.”

"Senator Scott Brown said today that “it’s sad” for rival Elizabeth Warren to criticize his decision to continue insuring one of his daughters through the Obama administration health care law that he has opposed and tried to repeal," The Boston Globe reports. "“For her to call me a hypocrite as to how Gail and I provide for our family, it’s sad,” Brown told reporters after a speech at Bunker Hill Community College."

NEVADA: The RNC warned Nevada Republicans that if Ron Paul delegates "are allowed to take too many slots for the national convention, Nevada's entire contingent may not be seated in Tampa," the Jon Ralston reports via Political Wire.

TEXAS: “After a decade of building a solidly Republican resume, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is finding it more difficult than expected to make the next step to higher political office. The man considered the likely choice to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison finds himself under attack in the Republican primary,” AP writes.
