WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren is on the verge of launching a campaign about her vision for the future. But first, she's explaining her past.

The Massachusetts Democrat apologized again Wednesday for claiming Native American identity on multiple occasions early in her career. The move followed a report that she listed her race as "American Indian" - in her own handwriting - on a 1986 registration card for the Texas state bar.

By providing fresh evidence that she had personally self-identified her race, the document resurrected the flap just as she's trying to gain momentum for her presidential bid.
