Allen Weh's campaign bus destroyed in fire

Arson hasn't been ruled out in the over-the-weekend burning of the bus used by GOP gubernatorial candidate Allen Weh, his campaign said.

The bus was destroyed after a fire broke Friday night out at its storage facility in Belen. Other vehicles also were destroyed.

According to the campaign: 

"The bus, known as Freedom1, will be missed by the campaign and many others because of its special connection to the firefighters who died in 9/11. The bus was built to lead “Ride to Remember-2002,” a motorcycle rally that involved more than 450 firefighters and rode to Ground Zero, the Pentagon and the crash site in Pennsylvania."

The red, white and blue bus had a photo of Weh and said "Veterans for Weh" on the side.
