INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 18,2016)- Two Republican Presidential candidates are expected to visit Indianapolis in the coming days, ahead of Indiana’s Primary Election on May 3.

There will be a lot of attention on Hoosier voters with no candidate from either side of the aisle locking up its party’s nomination yet.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz will campaign in Indianapolis on Thursday, April 21. He's set to speak at the Indiana GOP’s Spring Dinner.

Jeff Cardwell, chairman of the Indiana Republican Party, said he invited all the presidential candidates to the event and he’s excited that Cruz accepted his offer.

“This election cycle has put Indiana in a historic spot and we are ready for an exciting year,” said Cardwell.

Sources tell FOX59 Donald Trump will likely make a campaign stop in Indianapolis this week as well. However, the Trump campaign has yet to release any information about a possible campaign event in Indiana this week.

Trump was very critical of Carrier’s decision to leave Indianapolis and send hundreds of jobs to Mexico. Look for him to reinforce that message during any campaign stops in Indiana ahead of the May primary.

Security is a concern anytime presidential candidates travel to a city, and IMPD said it’s working on a security plan.
