OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin had a front row seat for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during a campaign rally at the Cox Convention Center arena.

Fallin attended the campaign event Friday, but the second-term GOP governor has yet to endorse a candidate in the race. Fallin met with Florida Senator Marco Rubio in Oklahoma City earlier Friday, and she plans to meet with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday.

Oklahoma is one of 12 states casting votes for party nominees on Tuesday.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a former GOP presidential hopeful, warmed up the crowd for Trump, who spoke for about 50 minutes.

Trump paused his briefly speech to confront a protester who held a sign reading: "Islamophobia is not the answer." A security team escorted the man from the arena.
