CINCINNATI — The Green Party turned to a pizza party Friday when their candidate was a no-show because she flew to the wrong Ohio city.

Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate, was due to speak in the Columbus area at noon Friday but flew to Cincinnati instead of Columbus, the Columbus Dispatch reported.

About 100 people were waiting to see Stein at Capital University in Bexley, according to the Dispatch. Organizers were ordering pizza for those waiting for Stein, who was due to arrive about two hours late.

"Things happen," Capital University Greens Student Organization President Aaron Suarez told the Dispatch.

It wasn't immediately clear which Cincinnati area airport Stein flew into, but it's possible that she landed at CVG -- meaning she would have also flown to the wrong state.

Stein, who was tied with Harambe in a recent presidential poll, is on the ballot in 40 states for the upcoming election. She is due to return to Cincinnati Sunday afternoon, when she will speak at Seasongood Pavilion in Eden Park.

As long as she was mixing up Ohio's C cities, at least Stein didn't fly to Cleveland.
