The 2016 American Boating Congress added two keynote speakers — Fox & Friends Weekend anchor Tucker Carlson and CNN commentator Paul Begala.

Carlson also is editor in chief at The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing news sites in the country. He joined Fox from MSNBC, where he hosted several nightly programs. Previously he was co-host of “Crossfire” on CNN, and he was the host of a weekly public affairs program on PBS.

Begala is part of a political team on CNN that has won Emmy and Peabody awards. He was an adviser to President Bill Clinton and was a senior adviser for the pro-Obama Super PAC during the 2012 presidential election campaign.

ABC will be held May 9-11 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
