The Mitt Romney rally in Pueblo scheduled for Sunday afternoon has been cancelled, according to a campaign spokesperson.
"Due to an incident at the Pueblo airport earlier this morning, today's afternoon rally with Governor Mitt Romney has been cancelled," explains Elle Wallace, a communications director for the campaign's Colorado operation.
A man was killed in a crash just before 9 a.m. while flying an experimental airplane. The pilot was based out of Pueblo, according to Airport Manager Mark Lovin.
No word from the campaign if the rally will be rescheduled.
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the crash.
