Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is railing against the federal government's influence in the West, saying that states are in the best position to resolve conflicts over the management of wild horses and roads on public lands.

About 300 people turned out Thursday to see Paul at an Elko, Nevada, rally ahead of Saturday's presidential caucus. As many or more gathered to see him Thursday night at a rally in Reno.

The Texas congressman says that, although he's unsure of the solution to the wild horse problem in Nevada and other Western states, federal land managers should be the last resort to resolve the issue.

Paul says the U.S. Forest Service should not be imposing travel management plans on public land in Nevada and elsewhere across the West.
