Senate candidates’ forthrightness put to test
The leading candidates in the US Senate race have faced a variety of situations in recent days that offered atypical testimony to their forthrightness. Two weeks ago, it was how they handled releasing their income tax returns. Last week, it was how Elizabeth Warren dealt with questions about how she characterized her ethnic heritage while climbing the academic ladder. Meanwhile, Scott Brown was confronted about how he handled his family’s health insurance after calling to repeal the Obama administration’s health care law.
