Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who is single, says he is not gay and wants to have children one day, despite ruling party supporters' claims otherwise.
Supporters of late president Hugo Chavez, who won October elections against Capriles and died in March, have long used gay slurs against the Miranda state governor as part of political attacks.
"I am not offended at all and if I were gay, I would say, 'what's the problem?'" Capriles told CNN's Spanish-language sister network CNN en Espanol on Sunday.
