Former U.S. Sen. George Allen is again saying that he regrets using the term "macaca" to refer to a Democratic campaign volunteer of Indian ancestry in 2006.
Allen told the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference on Friday that he "never should have singled out that young man working for my opponent, calling him a name." Allen said the volunteer videotaping his appearance at a rally was just "doing his job" and added, "I was wrong to do that to him."
The Republican is seeking to recapture the Senate seat he lost in 2006 to Democrat Jim Webb, who is retiring.
The term "macaca" is considered an ethnic disparagement in some cultures. Allen was widely criticized for the remark after the video was posted on YouTube and it went viral.
