Rossi, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, has been an outspoken critic of issues important to American Indians and the Spokane Tribe in particular, according to a statement released by the tribe.
Spokane Tribal Council Chairman Gregory Abrahamson said the tribe "did not intend to provide a football field bearing the tribe's name to honor a political candidate such as Mr. Dino Rossi," according to the statement.
