SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ted Cruz both plan to campaign in Nevada on the day of next week’s GOP caucus.

Trump’s campaign announced he will appear at noon on Tuesday at the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.

The billionaire real estate magnate and reality TV star drew a crowd of nearly 4,000 there in October, and about 2,000 at a similar rally in downtown Reno last month.

Since then, he has finished second to Cruz in the Iowa caucus and won the New Hampshire primary by a large margin.

Cruz plans at least eight stops in Nevada down the stretch, beginning with a rally in Pahrump Sunday and ending in Las Vegas Tuesday night.

Jeb Bush plans town hall meetings in Summerlin Sunday and Reno Monday evening.
