San­to­rum says shirt­less shot of him ‘not pretty’

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

Rick San­to­rum is of­fer­ing a tongue-in-cheek apol­ogy to any­one who has seen the re­cent snap­shot of him sun­bathing pool­side at a re­sort in Puerto Rico.

The Re­pub­li­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date ap­pears shirt­less and shoe­less in light-col­ored shorts while tak­ing a break from cam­paign­ing in the U.S. com­mon­wealth.

The photo ap­peared on a blog and be­gan show­ing up on var­i­ous web­sites.

In an in­ter­view Fri­day with Chicago ra­dio sta­tion WIND, San­to­rum said he prob­a­bly should lose 15 or 20 pounds.

Mr. San­to­rum tells WIND, “I apol­o­gize to all of us, be­cause I’m sure it’s not a pretty sight.”

Mr. San­to­rum re­turned from a visit to Puerto Rico to cam­paign in Illi­nois, which has its pri­mary Tues­day.
