Howard apologises for forgetting candidate's name

Prime Minister John Howard has apologised to a federal Liberal candidate for forgetting her name.

Vanessa Goodwin is looking to win the southern Tasmanian seat of Franklin from Labor.

Speaking on ABC Radio this morning, Mr Howard said Ms Goodwin has his support but he could not recall her name.

Ms Goodwin says she is not disappointed.

"No not at all, these things happen - I forget people's names, I'm sure you do to," she said.

"It's just one of those things that happens.

"I was delighted really when the Prime Minister rang to apologise for forgetting my name."
