Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein ended up in the wrong Ohio city Friday for an unknown reason, delaying a speech she was supposed give at a university, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

Stein was slated to speak at noon at Capital University, a school in Bexley, OH, near Columbus. But there seemed to some miscommunication because the Capital University Greens Student Organization told The Dispatch that Stein flew into Cincinnati, which is about 2 hours away by car.

The paper reported that there were about 100 attendees waiting at the rally site for Stein and that pizzas are being ordered for those who waited while Stein made that drive. It was unclear who was providing the pizzas.

It may sound like a frustrating experience, but Aaron Suarez, president of Capital University Greens Student Organization, shrugged it off.

“They just got on the road and will be two hours late. Things happen,” he told the paper.

As of this posting Stein had not yet arrived at the rally site.
