Republican John Kasich is planning an event in Rhode Island ahead of the state's presidential primary and other candidates are considering doing the same.

The Ohio governor is the first presidential candidate this primary season to plan a Rhode Island event. Kasich is scheduled to speak at Bryant University in Smithfield on Saturday.

Donald Trump's honorary state campaign chairman says the Trump campaign has asked him about venues that could accommodate a large crowd. Republican state Rep. Joseph Trillo says he thinks Trump will come to Rhode Island this week.

The campaigns for Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders say it's a possibility the Democrats will visit too.

Republican Ted Cruz's campaign says there's no indication the Texas senator will visit Rhode Island, but that could change.
