LAS VEGAS (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is planning at least eight campaign events in Nevada leading up the state's caucuses.

The Texas senator's blitz starts with a Sunday afternoon rally in Pahrump. His Monday schedule includes a rally in the Summerlin community in Las Vegas, an afternoon rally in Elko and an evening rally in Reno.

He's planning rallies Tuesday in Fernley, Minden and Carson City before heading back down to Las Vegas for an evening victory rally. Republican candidates are expected to descend on the state after Saturday's primary in South Carolina and before Nevada Republicans head to caucuses on Tuesday night.
