The party of the presidential candidate killed in a plane crash will meet on Wednesday to choose a replacement to run in the Oct. 5 election, most likely his running mate, Marina Silva, the leader of a party backing the ticket said on Friday. Eduardo Campos was running third in recent polls for the Brazilian Socialist Party, when the executive jet carrying him to a campaign stop in the port city of Santos crashed on Wednesday after an aborted landing in bad weather.
