Ron Paul town hall meetings are planned for three California campuses this week, according to a spokesperson for California State University, Chico and the Texas congressman's website.  

The Republican presidential candidate is expected to hold a meeting at CSU Chico on Tuesday evening, and his website lists a town hall at the University of California Los Angeles on Wednesday, as well as and a meeting Thursday at UC Berkeley.

Paul's party rivals have already visited California -- some even broke down here. Yet to win a primary this campaign season, Paul's message of "peace, prosperity and individual liberty" is looking to resonate with students before the state primary on June 5.
