LEXINGTON, S.C. - Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum made his closing argument on Friday to South Carolina primary voters: Vote for me because I won't leave you hot and I won't leave you cold.

Trailing in polls and failing to draw big crowds at campaign events, the former Pennsylvania senator pitched himself as the alternative to front-runner Mitt Romney and former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"You have one candidate that is a little too radioactive, a little too hot," Santorum said about Gingrich, accused by rivals of being long-winded and "grandiose."
