BOSTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul continues to come under attack as some of the nation’s leading conservatives gather in New Hampshire.

Several potential Republican White House contenders headline a Saturday summit in Manchester, N.H., hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Speakers include Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, all potential presidential candidates. Also set to appear are real estate mogul Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

The summit comes as prospective presidential candidates begin to ramp up appearances in key states ahead of the 2016 presidential contest.

The health care overhaul is a central issue in the GOP’s midterm election strategy despite recent reports of strong enrollment figures.
