WASHINGTON – Syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer will be the keynote speaker at the American Bakers Association PAC Dinner April 22 during the A.B.A.  Convention in Aventura, Fla., said Steve Avera of Flowers Foods and A.B.A. PAC chairman.

Dr. Krauthammer has written a syndicated column for The Washington Post since 1985 and won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary. His column is published weekly in more than 290 newspapers worldwide. Dr. Krauthammer serves as a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard and The New Republic, and he is a weekly panelist on the TV show “Inside Washington.” Dr. Krauthammer contributes to Fox News and appears nightly on Fox’s evening news program, “Special Report with Bret Baier.”

“Dr. Krauthammer is a thoughtful, dynamic speaker who will share his thoughts on the current political environment, including an analysis of the agenda of the second Obama administration and potential for bipartisan governing in the 113th Congress,” Mr. Avera said.

The A.B.A. PAC Dinner is a ticketed event on Monday evening, April 22. Invitations and ticket order forms were e-mailed to authorized A.B.A. members on Feb. 20.

“We are very excited to bring such a well-respected and influential commentator to Florida for this year’s American Bakers PAC Dinner,” said Kelly Knowles, A.B.A. PAC director. “A limited number of high-dollar donors will also be able to meet personally with Dr. Krauthammer during a roundtable discussion prior to the dinner. Funds raised will allow American Bakers PAC to support candidates who support bakers in the 2014 election.”
