Weather forces Huckabee to postpone one eastern Iowa stop this morning

INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -

Former Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee has to skip his first eastern Iowa stop this morning after weather canceled his flight.

His campaign says getting in and out of Atlanta was a problem.

The GOP presidential candidate was supposed to be in Independence this morning. That event has been postponed and his campaign told KWWL the Manchester stop later this morning is up in the air because of a mechanical problem with a plane.

He's also scheduled to be in Maquoketa later today.

Gov. Huckabee Tweeted this morning, "Sitting in Atlanta airport since last night trying to get to Iowa events. Waiting on Delta to fix a broken plane. Really hate missing my events in Iowa while I am held up in Atlanta airport."
