Ron Paul says he's not worried about Rick Perry and Mitt Romney pulling away from a crowded Republican presidential field.

He told reporters in Los Angeles Saturday his campaign is building strength and "it's way too early" to be making judgments about the presidential horse race.

Recent national polls have shown Perry and Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, breaking away from the pack.

An independent Field Poll of California Republicans this week ranks Paul in single digits, with Romney and Perry out front.

Paul says that if it is a two-person race "it's Romney and me... That's OK."

He earlier won cheers from about 200 party activists in a speech that broadly faulted the nation's foreign and monetary policies and called for a scaled-down federal government.
