Florida Senator Marco Rubio's plane made an emergency landing in Albuquerque after a sensor went off indicating electrical problems, public information officer at Albuquerque International Sunport Daniel Jiron said.
The plane was going from Las Vegas to Des Moines for a rally for presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
