MONTGOMERY — The Alabama secretary of state’s office says three leading Republican presidential candidates will visit Alabama before next week’s Super Tuesday primaries.

Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are scheduled to speak at a forum Saturday in Birmingham. Each candidate will be interviewed individually at Samford University’s Wright Center.

Donald Trump is scheduled to visit Huntsville on Sunday, his third campaign stop in the state this election cycle.

Secretary of State John Merrill says he is “thrilled” candidates are visiting Alabama to interact with voters.

Alabama has joined other Southern states in a so-called “SEC Primary” on March 1 to try drawing more interest in the region from presidential candidates.
