Donald Trump plans to have a rally Saturday in Wichita as Republicans prepare to vote in the state's presidential caucuses.

The billionaire businessman's campaign for the GOP nomination announced the event Friday, as rival and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was campaigning in the state.

Trump's campaign posted a statement on a website but did not provide additional details.

Republican candidate Ted Cruz also planned to be in Wichita on Saturday to speak at the Century II arena caucus site as voting opens at 10 a.m.

Cruz had a campaign stop Wednesday evening in Olathe, followed by a rally at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park.

Rubio's rallies Friday were Topeka, Wichita and Overland Park.

They're vying for the state's 40 delegates to the GOP National Convention this summer.
