Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is criticizing rival Rick Perry for what he calls "offensive" language in the name of a Texas hunting camp his family once leased.
Romney told Sean Hannity's radio show Monday that he found the camp's name, Niggerhead, inappropriate and said called on Perry to address it.
Perry's campaign has said Perry's father painted over a rock with the camp's name soon after he began leasing the site in the early 1980s. The campaign says the Texas governor and his family never controlled, owned or managed the property.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that the origins of the name were unclear and there was no definitive account for when and how the name first appeared on rock at property's gate. But it hasn't spared Perry criticism.
