Eh?: Letterman all up in Minnesota stuff

Late Night talk show host David Letterman spent considerable time Tuesday yukking it up with Duluth-based Trampled by Turtles after the band played a song from its new album on his show.

Letterman talked up Duluth a bit and even mentioned the taconite iron ore mined on the Iron Range. But he also mentioned off-handedly that he had spent the weekend with Minnesota’s U.S. senators.

Turns out Letterman attended the same fundraiser as Minnesota Democrats Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar. Franken campaign spokeswoman Alexandra Fetissoff confirmed the Minnesota pols met Letterman at a fundraiser, but she declined to say who the fundraiser was for or where it was held.
