A blimp-like aircraft that carried advertising showing a beaming Mitt Romney was forced to make an emergency landing in a heavily Democratic part of Florida on Sunday, The Miami Herald reported.

No one was injured in the crash, according to local authorities who spoke with The Herald. Two people were aboard.

The blimp started its flight in Boca Raton, the site of tonight's debate, and moved south, according to The Herald. The airship carried a message: "America Needs Romney," along with a picture of the grinning candidate.
