Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is among the 2016 presidential contenders that will headline an inaugural conservative summit in New Hampshire, which will also draw the likes of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and New York real estate mogul Donald Trump.

The Hill reported Wednesday that Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity Foundation are teaming up to host the Freedom Summit on April 12 in Manchester, N.H.

“I can think of no better place than the ‘Live Free or Die’ state to begin this dialogue on how to return our country back to a shining city upon a hill and return to the ideals of Ronald Reagan’s hope, growth and opportunity that have made our country a beacon of freedom around the globe,” said President of Citizens United David N. Bossie in a statement, The Hill reported.

Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee are also expected to address the summit.
New Hampshire hosts the first-in-the-nation primary.

Mitt Romney won the state’s primary in the 2012 GOP presidential race, and President Obama captured the state in the general election.
