Santorum offers sweater vests for $100 campaign donations

    If you want a specially made, embroidered Rick Santorum sweater vest, it’ll cost you.

    But if you want candidate’s mock sweater vest that badly, you probably won’t think twice about the $100 donation it’ll cost you.

    Santorum, the Republican presidential candidate who hails from Pennsylvania, is offering the vests to donors who give $100 or more to his campaign. Bemidji Woolen Mills of Minnesota is making the vests, similar to the one Santorum says brought him luck in Iowa. The company has 1,000 orders to fill after another firm couldn’t make it happen.

     

    Woolen Mills is “getting fair wholesale price.”
