With any luck at all this blimp crashing on its way to tonight's debate in Boca Raton signals an omen for Mitt Romney's impending fate as a presidential candidate. Report by NBC, Miami.

A blimp-like aircraft carrying a Mitt Romney campaign message crash landed in a field in Davie Sunday night, officials said.

No one was injured when the thermal airship, which had a photo of the GOP presidential hopeful and the slogan "America Needs Romney," went down in the 3800 block of Southwest 92nd Avenue around 7:30 p.m., Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

The airship had been traveling from Boca Raton, the site of Monday's third and final debate between Romney and President Barack Obama, to North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines.

It was about five miles from its destination when the pilot experienced the bad winds that sent the airship to the ground.

"We saw the blimp hovering over the house and it was floating backwards it looked like it was actually coming down," neighbor Teri Balter. "I thought boy, Mitt Romney really wants us to vote for him."

Witness Rosemary Dondiego, an Obama supporter, was relieved no one was injured and even cracked a joke.

"Yeah, I brought it down with a rock...no," she said.
