Ohio Democratic governor candidate 'disappointed'

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Democratic candidate for Ohio governor and his wife say they're disappointed by what they call personal attacks following a report that police responded to a call about the candidate and a woman in a car two years ago.

Ed FitzGerald and his wife, Shannon, also say they're disappointed that friends in Ireland are being dragged into what they call a negative campaign.

The couple's announcement came just hours after a northeastern Ohio news organization published details of 2012 police records about FitzGerald and the woman in suburban Cleveland in a vacant parking lot at about 4:30 a.m.

Fitzgerald told the Northeast Ohio Media Group Friday (http://bit.ly/1zDVrwc ) that nothing inappropriate happened with the woman, a friend visiting from Ireland

FitzGerald canceled planned events Friday.
