Rick Santorum: What 'N Word' Did He Almost Call Obama?

Posted: Updated:

US Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been caught in a potentially embarrassing verbal slip-up.

In a clip uploaded on Thursday and reported to show Santorum speaking in Wisconsin on 27 March, he stumbles over a word beginning with 'N'.

"We know the candidate Barack Obama what he was like, the anti-war government n.." he says, before stopping himself. He adds "America was a source of division around the world."

It's not clear what Santorum was about to say. We will let you decide.
