BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is planning to campaign in Fargo Thursday in advance of North Dakota's presidential preference caucuses next week.

North Dakota Republican spokesman Matt Becker says Romney will visit Wrigley Mechanical in Fargo at 8 a.m. Thursday. Wrigley Mechanical is run by the family of North Dakota Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley.

Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Ron Paul have also campaigned in North Dakota recently.

North Dakota Republicans are holding statewide presidential caucuses on March 6. There will be more than 50 caucus locations across the state.

Romney has not campaigned in North Dakota this year. He did not visit North Dakota four years ago when he won the state's Republican presidential caucuses. In 2008, Romney got 36 percent of the vote in a five-candidate race.
