Al Franken Enlists Conan O'Brien for Fundraising Help
Looking to bolster his campaign coffers, Sen. Al Franken has recruited Conan O'Brien for brunch on April 7.
Contributors who donate to the congressman will be entered into a raffle that offers a prize of "the best brunch in the world" -- featuring Franken and the late night host at his home in Los Angeles.
The Minnesota Democrat encouraged participation in an email to supporters entitled "Brunch with me and Conan?"
"Imagine how much fun it would be to hang out at Conan’s house," Franken wrote. "Imagine how jealous your ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend/boss/parents/neighbors/cousins will be."
O'Brien has previously helped raise funds for the former Saturday Night Live writer turned Senator. In 2010, the Conan host appeared at a Minneapolis event benefiting Franken's political action committee.
