Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump both plan to be in Wichita on Saturday morning for the Republican caucus.

They plan to be at the Sedgwick County caucus site at Century II to speak to voters. The caucus starts at 10 a.m. Doors open at 8 a.m.

Trump’s campaign also announced a rally in Wichita at 9 a.m. (correcting earlier reports that said 8 a.m.) It will also be at Century II, according to Todd Johnson, chair of the Sedgwick County Republican Party. Johnson said the candidate would stay for the early part of the caucus before leaving to an appearance in Florida.

Cruz plans to speak to the caucus at 10 a.m., his campaign said.

Cruz’s campaign will hold a rally Friday night at the Wichita Marriott. He will not attend. The event will feature Rep. Tim Huelskamp and Rafael Cruz, the senator’s dad.

Cruz spoke Wednesday night in Johnson County.
