Rep. Pete King (R-Seaford) is headed back to New Hampshire, this time joining other long-shot presidential hopefuls at the Northeast Republican Leadership Conference on the weekend of March 14.

Also scheduled to be at the Nashua, N.H. conference hosted by the New Hampshire Republican State Committee are Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, 2012 presidential candidate Rick Santorum and former U.S. Ambassador John Bolton.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie mired in the George Washington Bridge gridlock scandal, King and his fellow speakers have a chance to draw a little attention to themselves as Republicans look around for a 2016 standard-bearer.
