NEW YORK — A plane carrying Republican Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence and his campaign crew slid off the runway at LaGuardia Airport Thursday evening.

The plane slid off the runway around 7:30 p.m., near 82nd Street and Grand Central Parkway in East Elmhurst, Queens, according to WPIX-TV.

There were 37 people on the plane, including the candidate.

No injuries have been reported at this time.

The flight was delayed initially because of problems at LaGuardia, giving Pence time to toss the football around while stranded on the tarmac in Iowa, and tweet this photo:
