Dickinson, ND (WDAY TV) - A Republican presidential candidate makes his first 2012 campaign stops in North Dakota. Texas Congressman Ron Paul spoke to about 550 supporters in Dickinson.

He talked about energy issues facing the state. Paul says regulation on hydraulic fracturing should be a local matter and the Keystone Pipeline should be approved.

REP. RON PAUL - (R) Presidential Candidate: “I'm annoyed that the President has that much power, the President shouldn't have that much power to dictate one way or the other, it should be a more local issue.”

Paul also spoke in Williston. Supporters waited in long lines to shake his hand and take pictures after his speeches.

TRAVIS BEECH - Traveled From Fargo: “Big fan of his foreign policy, we need to get our troops home and that's the main thing in my book."

MICHAEL FORD – Taylor: "This isn't anything new, we're pretty familiar with Ron Paul, he's a guy whose going to carry a message for a lot of Americans and he's really what we need.”

Paul will speak at the Jamestown Knights of Columbus tomorrow afternoon at 1.
