A flat tire is apparently keeping Senator Clinton from making her 12:15 p.m. scheduled stop at Ankeny’s DMACC campus to discuss health care issues with Iowans.

Close to the original event start time, a campaign aide made the announcement that Sen. Clinton was running late because there was a flattened tire on her chartered airplane and they had yet to depart from Washington, D.C. He said she would be expected around 2:00 p.m. and that lunch was being brought in for those patiently waiting the Senator’s arrival.

According to one food service worker at the event, they were informed around 10:00 a.m. that they needed to increase their meal order – originally planned for the working media – to feed 300 people.

At a quarter after 2:00 p.m., a woman took the microphone to say Sen. Clinton would be there in just a few more minutes.

UPDATE: 2:27 p.m. — Clinton event starts.
