DERRY, N.H. (AP) _ The word has gone out from Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani: people should leave his family alone.
He was asked at a New Hampshire town hall meeting why he should
expect loyalty from voters when he doesn't get it from his own children.
His comment was greeted with a smattering of applause from the audience, but the questioner says it remains an issue that is "going to stay there for a lot of people."
Giuliani has a daughter who has indicated support for Democrat Barack Obama and a son who said he didn't speak to his father for some time. Giuliani had an ugly divorce from their mother and has since remarried.
He urged those gathered to judge his performance as mayor of New
York and as federal prosecutor.
