Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump is headlining a rally in northwest Arkansas days before the state's primary.

Trump's campaign says the billionaire and reality television star will hold a rally Saturday in Bentonville. It's his third trip to Arkansas since launching his bid for the Republican nomination last year and comes a few days before the state's March 1 primary.

Several GOP hopefuls have campaigned in the state since lawmakers moved up the primary from May. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida headlined a rally before 2,000 people in Little Rock on Sunday, and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is headlining a rally in Arkansas this weekend.
