Donald Trump coming to Kansas on Saturday

March 4, 2016

GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will make an appearance in Wichita to coincide with Saturday's Kansas caucuses, according to a Friday press release from his campaign.

For what the press release calls a "major rally," Trump will fly to Wichita before heading later in the day to Florida, which is also selecting its GOP candidate Saturday. Details on the Wichita rally were not yet available on Trump's official campaign event page Friday.

Trump's visit to Wichita means he will not be attending the Conservative Political Action Conference, a typical rallying point for leading Republican candidates.

Earlier Friday, Trump tweeted about receiving support from businessman Phil Ruffin in Wichita, which he misspelled "Witchita."

Trump was recently endorsed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Rival GOP candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz made stops in the state earlier this week. And Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders drew thousands of supporters Thursday night to the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
