Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will return to the Indiana State Fairground for another campaign rally. This time, according to his campaign, he'll have a special guest with him who's well-known to Hoosiers: Former Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight. 

Trump's campaign announced the event will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Indiana Farmers Coliseum. The coliseum has a capacity of 8,200 for concerts, compared to about 5,500 for the Blue Ribbon Pavilion, where Trump held a rally April 20.

The rally announcement came as GOP foe Ted Cruz held a third straight day of campaign events in Indiana ahead of Indiana's May 3 primary.

Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich announced Sunday they were coordinating in an effort to stop Trump from getting the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination before the GOP's July convention. Kasich agreed not to campaign in Indiana and canceled a rally he had planned for Tuesday.
