Republican Senator Marco Rubio is adding presidential campaign stops in Kansas during the final hours before the caucuses on Saturday.

The Florida senator is now scheduled to campaign during three stops in Kansas on Friday.

Rubio will start off in Topeka in the morning, he’ll hit Wichita in the afternoon and wrap the day with an Overland Park event in the evening.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz already hit the ground in Kansas with a rally on Wednesday night in Overland Park. Real estate mogul Donald Trump and Ohio Governor John Kasich haven’t scheduled any campaign stops in Kansas.

On the Democratic side, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will rally supporters in Lawrence on Thursday night. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton doesn’t have any stops in Kansas currently scheduled.
