Mike Pence's campaign plane skids off runway at LaGuardia; no injuries reported

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence's campaign plane had a rough landing Thursday night, skidding off a runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport. 

In a statement, the campaign said there were no injuries and that Donald Trump, the GOP nominee, had talked to his running mate. 

"Mr. Trump called him. ... He reached out to Gov. Pence and he is very glad everyone aboard is safe," Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for Trump, said. 

Rain blanketed the New York area much of Thursday and earlier in the day Pence held rallies in Iowa and Nebraska. 

The airport was briefly closed as fire crews responded to the incident.

At a rally later in the evening in Ohio, Trump mentioned Pence's plane. 

"The plane skidded off the runway and was pretty close to grave grave danger but I just spoke to Mike Pence and he is fine, everybody's fine," Trump said.
