(Newser) – Rick Santorum joins the shirtless candidates' club, notes Gawker. A photo appeared online yesterday of Santorum sunbathing at a Puerto Rican resort during his visit there ahead of tomorrow's primary, reports the Huffington Post. "I apologize to all of us, because I'm sure it's not a pretty sight," he said. The pic was originally posted at the blog Joe My God, reportedly taken by a member of an all-gay cruise at the same resort.

"They caught me sunbathing," he said. "We took about an hour to sit out by the pool and catch a few rays, and so I guess a paparazzi got me," said Santorum, "and I know, I probably should lose about 15, 20 pounds, but I'm working on it." The Romney-friendly Drudge Report has been been giving the photo prominent play. (Read more Rick Santorum stories.)
