Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was supposed to speak at Capital University at noon today, but will be a couple hours late to the podium.

About 100 people were waiting to see Stein at Capital University in Bexley, according to the Dispatch.

Stein then drove the distance between the two cities, delaying the rally by about two hours. The school's branch of the Green Partyconfirmed the mixup to The Columbus Dispatch.

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

Greens congratulate Victoria and push for a national fracking ban
A Victorian parliamentary inquiry into the issue in 2015 received more than 1,600 submissions, majority opposing the practice. Conventional gas is found in sandstone reservoirs and can be easily extracted with traditional well-drilling techniques.

One of the problems with the Greens is that they have become less about their original ideology, and more the Jill Stein party.

Stein's presidential campaign is doing more harm than good for the Green Party, and odd gaffes like flying to the wrong city are another blow to the Green Party's credibility.

The long-shot candidate has about 2 percent of support in OH, and her national support varies between 1-5 percent, depending on the poll. It's unclear if they will all hang around while Stein drives up from Cincinnati but pizza's are being ordered to thank people for their patience. She is due to return to Cincinnati Sunday afternoon, when she will speak at Seasongood Pavilion in Eden Park.
