The second debate between U.S. Senate incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is slated for tonight and the meetup promises to be a showdown. A Week of Back and Forth Since the first debate between the two candidates a week ago, Brown's campaign has been pressing Warren on her claim to Native American ancestry. “Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color — and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said at the debate, inferring Warren got special treatment from her employers because of her heritage. ”I didn’t get an advantage because of my background,” Warren said. However, Scott's campaign may have pressed the issue too far. A video surfaced this week that reportedly shows Brown staffers …

"He has said he will defend the top 2 percent and the top 3 percent...and will hold the other 98 percent of families hostage," Warren said, referencing Brown's position against extending the Bush-era tax cuts unless it also contained cuts for the country's top earners. Brown countered by noting that Warren's policies would raise …
