(Hershey) -- Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and John Kasich are scheduled to speak to conservative activists in Pennsylvania with barely three weeks until the state's primary.

Cruz and Kasich were scheduled to speak Friday afternoon at the Pennsylvania Leadership Council, billed as the state's largest annual gathering of conservatives.

Earlier, Kasich told a town hall-style gathering in Hershey at the Antique Automobile Club museum that he wants to be the candidate who talks about how to fix problems, not the candidate who talks about how hopeless everything is.

This is Cruz's first campaign appearance in Pennsylvania, while Kasich has been in the state where he was born a couple times already.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump hasn't campaigned in Pennsylvania and the leadership council's president says Trump hasn't taken up an invitation to appear.

Pennsylvania's primary election is April 26.
