ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, barnstorming for presidential candidate Mitt Romney, made an unexpected stop in Albuquerque Saturday when his plane developed in-flight problems and made an emergency landing.

The private plane touched safely down just before 4 p.m. after a cockpit sensor indicated an electrical problem, according to Daniel Jirón, a spokesman for the Albuquerque International Sunport.

Fire and rescue units were called out and standing by for the landing, Jirón added.

Small plane crashes have killed at least 3 senators and 1 ex senator in fairly recent years. I count John Heinz, John Tower, Paul Wellstone, and Ted Stevens. Blessings and safety on those currently traveling.

My employer owned a small private aircraft which was used every week for employee travels on business because it saved a lot of time, and employee time is money. This employer was not a big outfit, about 400 employees. I guess you are not familiar how business works.

I guess not, but Marco is...
The Miami Herald and the Tampa Bay Times (then known as the St. Petersburg Times) reported during Rubio’s Senate bid that the Florida Republican had billed the state party for more than $100,000 during the two years he served as state House speaker:

The charges included repairs to the family minivan, grocery bills, plane tickets for his wife and purchases from retailers ranging from a wine store near his home to Apple’s online store. Rubio also charged the party for dozens of meals during the annual lawmaking session in Tallahassee, even though he received taxpayer subsidies for his meals.

JULY 27, 2012 Ethics commission dismisses old case against Rubio
The Florida Commission on Ethics dismissed a long lingering complaint against U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio on Friday, clearing him of wrongdoing in questions surrounding his use of a state GOP-issued credit card.

“This was a politically motivated and frivolous complaint from the start, and Sen. Rubio is pleased that the commission dismissed it on all counts,” spokesman Alex Burgos said.

The March 2010 ethics complaint came during Rubio’s Senate campaign against then-Gov. Charlie Crist...

Amen to that sister! Rubio is our Silver bullet that will deposit liberalism on the ash heap of history. I believe Romney made his pick two years ago. His ability to be able to talk to the youth and to Hispanics and to the Tea Party makes triple threat that the Dems can’t answer.

Marco Rubio is a RINO fraud. He was a liberal Florida State senator and a liberal Florida House Speaker. Upon joining the United States senate,he refused to join the Tea Party caucus. He lied about his parents being refugees from Castro’s Cuba,when he knew full well they came to the United States,before Castro came to power. Rubio was the co-sponsor of the senates internet freedom killing,’PIPA’ legislation,the companion to the House’s draconian,’SOPA’ Bill. When the Bleep hit the fan when the people in this Country found out about what was in ‘PIPA’,Rubio acted like he hadn’t heard of the bill before and came out against it,Even though he was the co-sponsor. He also joined McCain,Boehner et al in attacking ,over her legitimate criticism of Huma Abedin. Plus,the week Obama gave an executive order granting Amnesty,it was revealed several days before, that Rubio was working behind the scenes with the dems for a compromise ‘Dream Act’. Now given all those FACTS,what the heck in the world exactly, qualifies Rubio as a Conservative?

BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! I even heard the SAME type of comments last year about Michelle Bachman. Fact is, there is a BIZARRE subset here that will accuse people of being RINOS even when they are solid conservative. Like I said...BIZARRE.

Exhibit A. The left wing is truly terrified of Marco Rubio and have their talking points distributed and ready to go. As they say, the flax you see launched against Sen. Rubio is proof he is over the target any bombing will commence in about 10 days. I was on U Tube last night watching his appearance on the Daily Show (3 parts) then read the comments. He beats the tar out of him, educates them and they like him. This is why the Establishment left is terrified. Like the Great Communicator, he brings hope to the young based on conservative values. If you remember nothing else, the concept of “people of color” is a ruse intended to solidify the Hispanic vote at 95% for the liberal party. After Rubio we will reach 53% and it will fundamentally change the Dem party who will resurrect Scoop Jackson .

Has Rubio done anything illegal?
If yes, why is there no prosecution/indictment?

Party money is basically for campaigns. Any politician
can be said to be campaigning on any trip if there is
public contact involved.

Unless Rubio is charged and proven guilty in a court of law,
any newspaper article about such subterfuge is only good for
wrapping fish. We call our local paper Oregonian fish wrapper which is the name given to it by Lars Larson, who is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, and one of the more smart conservative hosts. Much better at debating liberals than Sean Hannity for example. And Lars never has to resort to rudeness to callers such as Mark Levin for example. Lars performs jujitsu on every liberal caller with astute dialog without ever raising his voice.

This crap didn’t happen “as much” when Bush and Toni Jeninnings were in office. Do you follow Fl. Politics? Google Jim Greer....
