'Saturday Night Live' alums will help Franken raise cash in L.A.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), who made pains to distance himself from his "Saturday Night Live" persona during his 2008 Senate run, will host a fundraiser with several fellow SNL alums in Los Angeles this weekend.

Slated to appear, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, are Dan Aykroyd, Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon.

A cocktail and dinner reception for big donors will be held before another, less expensive reception. The events will benefit both Franken's 2014 reelection campaign and his leadership PAC.

Franken held a fundraiser in Minneapolis recently featuring a current SNL cast member, Seth Meyers.
