SIDNEY, Ohio (AP) - The mother of a former Navy SEAL killed in Libya has called on Mitt Romney to stop talking about her son during his political campaign.
A spokesman for the Republican presidential candidate says Romney will respect her wishes.
Romney has been telling voters of sharing a Christmas dinner with the former SEAL, Glen Doherty, two or three years ago. Doherty was among four Americans killed in the attacks in Benghazi.
Romney has been trying to show a more personal side in recent days. He's also been criticizing President Barack Obama's over the attack in Libya.
On Wednesday, Doherty's mother, Barbara Doherty, told Boston television station WHDH that she doesn't trust Romney and called on Romney to stop making her son's death, in her words, "part of his political agenda."
