Sen. Amy Klobuchar returns to the State Theatre stage for MinnRoast 2015

A late entry to this year’s line-up, Sen. Amy Klobuchar recently announced she’ll be able to join us for MinnRoast 2015. The two-term senior senator brought the house down at previous MinnRoasts and we look forward to adding her monologue to this year’s event. View the clip below to see Sen. Klobuchar and Sen. Franken performing at MinnRoast 2013.

Sen. Klobuchar’s memoir, “The Senator Next Door: A Memoir from the Heartland,” will be released in August of this year.
