BOSTON (AP) — Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown is exploring a U.S. Senate bid in New Hampshire as high-profile Republicans from across the country gather in the state with an eye on the 2016 presidential contest.

Friday marks the first day of the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference, which features prospective presidential candidates and GOP leaders looking to court New Hampshire voters. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a 2012 presidential candidate, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal headline Friday's speaking program.

Brown's interest in a Senate campaign against New Hampshire's first-term Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (jeen shuh-HEEN') may overshadow the weekend event in Nashua.

Brown's expected to launch an exploratory committee to enter the race as soon as Friday. That's according to several New Hampshire Republican officials who spoke directly to Brown about his plans.
