ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Former New Mexico Sen. Pete Domenici says he's disappointed to hear that he's persona non grata to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid because Domenici fathered a son out of wedlock in the 1970s with a daughter of then-Sen. Paul Laxalt of Nevada.

Domenici and Michelle Laxalt earlier this year disclosed that Domenici fathered her son, saying they feared somebody was about to make it public.

Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he won't see Domenici or mention his name because of his conduct.

Domenci tells the Albuquerque Journal that he's surprised to hear of Reid's rebuke about something that happened decades ago. He also says he hopes his relationship with Reid can be mended.

Domenici retired from the Senate in 2009 after serving six terms.
