FILE - In this Aug. 8, 2018 file photo, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., gestures during a town hall style gathering in Woburn, Mass. She took the DNA test President Donald Trump urged.

She’s getting some backlash from Native Americans and grumbling from Democrats who’d rather be talking about toppling Congress’ Republican majorities in the midterm elections three weeks away.
