Donald Trump, John Stockton and Brian Regan: What's happening in Utah?

Some of the biggest names in presidential politics, basketball and entertainment began descending on Utah beginning Friday.

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump visited the Beehive State for a campaign stop Friday, but he's not the only presidential candidate in Utah this weekend. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, and remaining GOP candidates Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich will also participate in Utah events. The Deseret News' live blog will keep readers updated throughout the weekend.

Hall-of-Famer and former Utah Jazz point guard John Stockton came to town as part of the Women's NIT. The NBA's all-time leader in assists and steals is an assistant coach for Montana State, which took on the University of Utah Friday at the Huntsman Center.

And in the entertainment world, comedian and Utah favorite Brian Regan will perform two weekend shows at Vivint Arena beginning Friday.

Next week, a business management conference called "Domopolooza," sponsored by Utah-based Domo, kicks off March 21. The event will feature a lineup that includes NCAA and NBA champion Earvin "Magic" Johnson as a keynote speaker, and entertainment from Flo Rida, Nelly, T.I. and Walk the Moon.

Add the University of Utah's and Weber State's participation in the NCAA tournament, BYU hosting a second-round NIT game and Sunday's dedication of the Provo City Center Temple, and there's an abundance of news events involving the state.
