Tester: Warren’s DNA Results Don’t ‘Pass The Test’

Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) on Monday said Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) use of a DNA test to claim Native American heritage doesn’t “pass the test.” “I don’t think that would pass the test, no,” he said during a visit to the Rocky Boy’s Reservation, one of two he visited on Monday. But Tester waved off the uproar over Warren’s claimed Native American roots as a sideshow to the more important issues affecting reservations in the state. Tester made the remarks in an interview at a voter turnout event with the Chippewa Cree tribe. The incumbent will need a strong turnout of voters on Election Day to win what is considered a toss-up race against Republican Matt Rosendale.
