Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum allegedly told FOX reporters "Ron Paul is disgusting" following an interview on "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning.

FOX News Channel Producer Serafin Gomez wrote on the Greta Wire webpage that Santorum's harsh words were directed at his fellow Republican presidential primary candidate in response to Iowa robo calls that claimed Santorum was pro-choice and against the Second Amendment.

The comment was made to a "handful" of reporters.

Throughout the campaign Santorum and Paul have regularly squared off against each other, engaging in nasty exchanges on the debate stage as well as each making comments in the press that the other is "too liberal." Now both Paul and Santorum are neck-in-neck in what seems to be a three-way race with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney going into Tuesday's caucuses.
