Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich visited Le Moyne College on Friday, but he’s not the only candidate setting their sights on Central New York.

291 delegates are up for grabs on the Democratic side and 95 for the Republicans in New York’s primary— which is now even more important with recent wins by Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders, who are both trying to desperately close the gap on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump’s New York campaign chair Carl Paladino says Trump will likely be in Syracuse on Saturday, April 16, but local campaign organizers say no venue or time have been finalized.

Cruz is making a strong push in New York despite being well behind Kasich and Trump in most polls.

The Texas Senator will make a campaign stop in Syracuse sometime next week, but a date, place and time have not been set.

Cruz campaigned outside Albany Thursday and is also expected to visit Binghamton, Rochester and Buffalo.

On the Democratic side, Clinton has already stopped in Syracuse on her campaign trail.

Sanders is also confirming an Upstate New York visit— he’ll hold a rally in Buffalo on Monday.
