Green Party candidate for president Jill Stein was scheduled to speak at Capital University in Bexley, Ohio at noon Friday, but those plans had to change.

According to the university’s Greens Student Organization, Stein flew into Cincinnati earlier today rather than Columbus. The Columbus Dispatch reports that nearly 100 students were patiently awaiting the arrival of the presidential hopeful, as well as the pizza that has been ordered to thank them for their cooperation.

Local Green Party members addressed the gathering of students while Stein drove north from Cincinnati.

The latest Real Clear Politics average of four-way national polls has Jill Stein at 3 percent, which not only puts her well behind Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, but also Libertarian Gary Johnson, who is polling at nearly 8 percent.

Ohio is projected to be a critical swing state in the 2016 election.
