    BRASILIA, Brazil: The death in a plane crash of Socialist Party candidate Eduardo Campos has put an unpredictable spin on Brazil’s presidential elections, opening the way for a popular environmentalist to challenge incumbent Dilma Rousseff. The top two candidates, Rousseff and Social Democrat Aecio Neves, halted their campaigns as Brazil began a three-day period of national mourning for Campos, a 49-year-old former governor who had been running third in opinion polls when his jet crashed om Wednesday en route to Sao Paulo.
