For those keeping score at home, long-time Al Franken supporter Beverly Schilleman of Arden Hills is the winner of the senator’s national campaign sweepstakes to have brunch with him and late night talk show host Conan O’Brien.
The event is scheduled for this weekend at the O’Brien’s home in Los Angeles.
"I couldn't be more excited to share some pancakes with Al and Conan," Schilleman said in a statement released Wednesday by the campaign. "I’m a longtime supporter of Al’s and I had the 2008 yard sign to prove it.”
Apparently her husband Reed will be in tow.
The all-expenses-paid trip to “hang out” with Franken and O’Brien (who, like the senator, did a stint at Saturday Night Live) was an enticement to help the Minnesota Democrat hit his $100,000 fundraising contest goal for his 2014 reelection bid.
Franken’s GOP opponent has yet to be determined.
