    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is finishing a North Dakota campaign trip Monday with visits to Jamestown and Bismarck.

    Paul is speaking at legislative district conventions to attract support for next month's North Dakota Republican presidential caucuses.

    The Bismarck convention Monday night will include Republican activists from the city's five legislative districts.

    The Southeast Texas congressman made appearances Sunday in Williston and Dickinson. He drew about 800 people to Williston's high school auditorium.

    In North Dakota's Republican presidential caucuses in 2008, Paul finished third behind Mitt Romney and John McCain. Paul got 21 percent of almost 9,800 votes cast.

    This year's Republican national convention is being held in Tampa Bay in August. North Dakota will have 28 of the convention's almost 2,300 delegates.
