U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison suffered gamely through an interview by host Stephen Colbert.
Minnesota's Fifth Congressional District was the subject of a "Better Know A District" segment on Comedy Central's "Colbert Report" Thursday. Host Stephen Colbert highlighted New Hope, the Hennepin Avenue Bridge and Prince in his intro, then "sat down ... in a room" with U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (DFL-MN) for a wide-ranging, even scattershot interview that managed to touch on both Mohammed and Mary Tyler Moore. The "Fighting Fifth" is the second Minnesota district to be profiled on the "Colbert Report" and the 67th overall.

Local Republicans readying for Paul's appearance Friday.
See updates below. Ron Paul is set to speak at the Minnesota Republican convention Friday, and party activists in the Fifth District are preparing for a possible Paul win—with one local activist saying "I get the feeling I'm witnessing history." Paul is poised to make a strong showing in Minnesota after congressional-district conventions gave him 20 of 24 available national delegates. The Texas congressman was denied a speaking slot at the 2008 state convention, but has proven a popular candidate and speaker here since—turning fans away, for example, from an over-capacity speech in Arden Hills shortly before Minnesota's 2012 caucus night. On Monday, Paul announced his campaign would stop spending money in states that haven't yet held …
