WASHINGTON D.C. – A parade of presidential candidates making their way through Arkansas this weekend.

Four candidates — from both sides of the aisle – are visiting the Natural State, making their cases to voters before Super Tuesday.

Super Tuesday is just days away, an important time for candidates racing to the White House and all eyes are on the south. 

Donald Trump made a stop in Bentonville, Arkansas around noon today.

Trump’s Boeing 757 was the background for the rally.

Some of the first supporters arrived six hours before Trump to get the best seats in the house.

Sarah Huckabee and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie both opened up the event – endorsing the candidate.

Then, Trump was quick to attack candidate Marco Rubio – firing back after Thursday’s debate.

Trump said, “He couldn’t right now if he ran for office in Florida, he wouldn’t get elected for any office. They can’t stand him.”

Also on his list of talking points, building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants and bringing jobs back to America.

Both topics drawing reaction from the crowd..

Trump said, “We are going to make America great again, we are going to win, win, win! Thank you everybody!”

Trump’s top rival was not too far away.

Marco Rubio is in Rogers, Arkansas – his campaign says he was attending a church service last night around 9:30.

And in Little Rock – Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke at a rally with Glenn Beck.

While Trump, Rubio, Cruz and Clinton make appearances in northwest Arkansas — Bernie Sanders supporters are getting their voices heard in Fayetteville.

Dozens marched up Dickson street and ended with a rally on the Fayetteville square.

 Sanders did not attend, but guest speakers discussed their reasons for supporting Sanders and what he represents for local organizations and the people of Arkansas.
