Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), in an appearance Friday night on local news in Massachusetts, again refused to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage. The possible Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful told WGBY that her family’s stories were “sufficient” evidence of her heritage.

WGBY’s Carrie Saldo pointed to an editorial from The Berkshire Eagle calling on Warren to take a DNA test. “We call upon our senior senator to screw up her courage and take the spit test. If she already has but is keeping the results under wraps, we urge her to be forthcoming with them,” the editorial board wrote.

“Will you take a DNA test?” Saldo asked.

“No,” Warren responded. “I think this was fully litigated in 2012 here in Massachusetts.”

Saldo pointed that the controversy “keeps coming up.”

President Trump himself has raised the issue on multiple occasions, referring to the Democrat as “Pocahontas.”

“My brothers and I, we grew up in Oklahoma. We know our story from our mom and our dad and our grandmothers and our grandfather and from our aunts,” Warren said.

“And that’s sufficient for you?” Saldo asked.

“Oh yes. It’s been just fine for my brothers and me,” she responded. The senator then pivoted to railing against the loosening of banking regulations.
