Clinton declines comment on Spitzer, offers family thoughts and wishes

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Hillary Clinton is sidestepping questions about the sex scandal engulfing Eliot Spitzer, her home state governor and political ally. Campaigning in Pennsylvania today, she said she didn't have any comment on that.

She does say she's sending her "best wishes and thoughts" to the governor and his family.

Spitzer apologized today after he was accused of paying for sex with a high-priced call girl.

Clinton and Spitzer have been friendly colleagues since the former first lady first ran for the Senate in New York in 2000. Her aides say Clinton deeply respected Spitzer's work during his two terms as state attorney general.

Spitzer was slow to endorse Clinton's White House bid and has not been among her more forceful surrogates. But he is one of her all-important superdelegates.

Clinton declined to say whether she believed Spitzer could survive the scandal, which drew immediate calls for him to resign.
