ABC News’ Z. Byron Wolf Reports: Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tex., argues tomorrow’s Nevada GOP caucuses are in chaos, and is suggesting the Nevada State Republican Party postpone Saturday’s caucuses until it can get its act together.

"The inconsistencies, errors and multiple changes in the rules reek of playing politics with the what should be a neutral process," said Paul’s campaign manager Lew Moore in a press release sent to reporters Friday. 

"The people of Nevada deserve to know exactly what the rules are and to know that those rules are being fairly enforced.  This has not happened up to this point, and the caucus appears to be in chaos."

The Paul campaign argued many Nevada Republicans have received postcards with incorrect information about their caucus location, and suggested some counties have received an insufficient number of ballots.

"Given the caucus location confusion – with potential caucus participants not knowing where to go – and the new rule effectively allowing anyone to get a ballot, the Ron Paul campaign is concerned that the confusion surrounding the caucus will both disenfranchise voters and make the election particularly susceptible to vote fraud," says the Paul campaign press release.
