Senate candidate stumped by Navajo player question

Democratic senate candidate Jeff Merkley visited the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon on Sunday but didn't know the identify of the community's biggest celebrity, OPB News reported.

“Do you know who Jacoby Ellsbury is?" asked Warm Springs Radio KWSO.

"I don't," Merkley responded. KWSO laughed, OPB News reported.

Ellsbury, a member of the Navajo Nation, grew up on the reservation and plays for the Boston Red Sox.
