LITTLE ROCK — Several presidential candidates have announced plans to campaign in Arkansas in the days leading up to Tuesday’s primary election.


Republican candidate Marco Rubio’s campaign said Wednesday the Florida senator will campaign in Bentonville on Saturday and will return to Arkansas on Monday. Details were not immediately available.


Rubio held a rally in Little Rock last Sunday.


Republican candidate Ted Cruz will hold a rally Saturday in Little Rock and will visit Northwest Arkansas on Sunday, possibly to attend a church service, said state Rep. Bob Ballinger, R-Hindsville, Arkansas chairman of the Texas senator’s campaign. A third appearance in the state is possible, Ballinger said. Details were not available.


Cruz campaigned in Little Rock, Russellville and Van Buren in August and in North Little Rock in December.


Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign announced previously that the real estate mogul and reality TV star will hold a rally at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport in Bentonville at noon on Saturday.


Trump spoke at a Republican Party fundraiser in Hot Springs in July and held a rally in Little Rock on Feb. 3.


Hillary Clinton’s campaign said the Democratic candidate will be in Pine Bluff on Sunday but did not release details.


Clinton, former Arkansas and U.S. first lady and former secretary of state, spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser in North Little Rock in July and held a rally at Philander Smith College in Little Rock in September.


Clinton’s campaign also said the Arkansas Travelers, a group of supporters of Bill and Hillary Clinton that has been around since the early 1990s, will canvass in the Arkansas Delta on Thursday. The group will leave from Little Rock and visit Brinkley, Forrest City and West Memphis.


Lawmakers voted last year to move Arkansas’ primary and non-partisan judicial elections from late May to March 1 for the 2016 election cycle to allow the state to participate in Super Tuesday, when more than a dozen states, including several Southern states, are holding primaries or caucuses.
