A Republican Senate candidate in Massachusetts on Wednesday poked at incumbent Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), remarking that “only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”
Shiva Ayyadurai, an Indian-American who is running for the GOP Senate nomination in the state, made the remark on Fox Business’s “Varney & Co.” while discussing his bid.
“Well, I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian,” Ayyadurai said.
The Republican candidate said he previously sent Warren a DNA test kit on her birthday and was “very sad” when she decided to return the gift.
“But I’m looking forward to going against Warren. You know, I know how these elites work. I know I can defeat her,” he said.
