Santorum On Sweater Vests: 'Don't Let Sleeves Slow You Down'

Santorum seeks campaign cash with fashion pitch.

Why just support Rick Santorum when you can dress like him, too?

Now you can.

The GOP presidential candidate is offering to send you your very own official Rick Santorum For President sweater vest—perfect for demonstrating solidarity with "true conservatives," according to Santorum's web site—for a mere $100 donation.

The vests are 100 percent cotton, made in the U.S.A., and of course come in the classic heather grey Santorum has propelled to popularity in the wake of his surprise success in Iowa. The former Pennsylvania governor has even taken credit for a surge in other, non-official sweater vest sales.

But depending on how the New Hampshire primary goes for Santorum, the swank sweater vest might become a collectible by the time you get your paws on it.

The deadline to order the snazzy sweater vest is Wednesday and demand has been "extremely high" according to the Santorum campaign. Supporters wishing to sport the now-iconic fashion item could be left waiting up to six weeks for their Santorum sweater vest.

Bummer.
