A 15-year-old from Georgia was arrested Friday for threatening the life of leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Twitter, the Associated Press reports.

This is the second such arrest this week, after a 16-year-old in Georgia allegedly made a death threat to Trump on Twitter.

The names of the suspects and specifics of the alleged threats have not been released by police.

The Republican primary race continues on April 5 in Wisconsin and April 19 in New York. Trump holds a massive lead in his home state of New York but Wisconsin is a far tighter battle, according to the latest polls.
