Rob Ford acknowledges "rocky moments" at rally

Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is acknowledging "some rocky moments over the past year" but is vowing to fight harder than ever to win re-election.
   Ford, who was the first to register as a candidate in January, invoked the spirit of second chances during a speech in front of supporters on Thursday that he dubbed the official launch of his campaign.  Ford is seeking re-election on Oct. 27 despite acknowledging last year that he had smoked crack.
   After he acknowledged last year that he had smoked crack, the City Council voted to strip him of most of his mayoral powers.
   Volunteers gave out one free drink to everyone along with T-shirts.  There were lineups for Rob Ford bobble-head dolls that were being sold to raise money for the campaign.
