POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- A white supremacist says an Aryan Nations campaign that has distributed thousands of fliers across southern Idaho during the past month plans to target the university town of Pocatello next.

Paul Mullet, of Athol, says the literature is used for recruitment.

Mullet said he is the leader of the group, which has also distributed fliers in northern Idaho, and plans to hit Pocatello hard with its message.

During a two-week period that started March 6, Mullet said 3,000 fliers were distributed in the bottom half of the state. Idaho Falls residents found invitations to join the Aryan Nations in plastic eggs over the Easter holiday.

In February, Mullet revealed plans to move the group's headquarters to Oregon's Grant County, a sparsely populated area far from cities -- 198 miles from Portland and 147 miles from Boise.
