INDIANAPOLIS – The final weekend before Indiana’s May 3 primary is filled with a blitz of candidates and campaign stops.

“The people here in the Hoosier state are at a crossroads and you have a very clear choice,” Carly Fiorina said at a rally in Plainfield Saturday, the vice presidential candidate should Ted Cruz win the nomination.

Indiana is widely seen as a must-win for the Cruz campaign, which is focusing squarely on its mounting task to deny Donald Trump the GOP nomination before the party convention in Cleveland.

“The truth is Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are two sides of the same coin,” Fiorina said. “Hillary Clinton is a typical politician who has made millions selling access and influence, and Donald Trump has made his billions buying people like Hillary Clinton. He will not fight for us. He is the system.”

Trump was off the campaign trail Saturday, but has scheduled rallies Sunday in Terre Haute and Fort Wayne.

The GOP front-runner will also be in Carmel Monday for a 4 p.m. rally at The Center for Performing Arts.

Early voting, which ends Monday, is up in Marion County.

Election officials reported Saturday night in-person early voting is up 93 percent from this time in 2012 and up 14 percent than this time in 2008.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton will be in Indianapolis Sunday, attending a get out the vote event at 12:30 p.m. at Douglass Park Gymnasium.

Saturday, former President Bill Clinton campaigned across Indiana, including a stop in Kokomo talking to a group of United Auto workers.

“Hello Kokomo, I’m glad to be here,” Clinton said. “She’s got the best record of actually getting people together to make something happen.”

Cruz was in California Saturday.

Fiorina and Heidi Cruz have a planned rally Sunday afternoon in Lafayette.

“You go tell your friends here in the Hoosier state because indeed Hoosiers now are at a crossroads,” Fiorina said. “And you have a choice. You have a choice.”
