Eccentric mentions a US state (9)


I believe the answer is:


'us state' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'eccentric mentions a' is the wordplay.
'eccentric' is an anagram indicator.
'mentions' is an anagram of 'minnesot'.

(Other definitions for minnesota that I've seen before include "Nominates the strange state" , "Nominates for American state" , "Superior neighbour" , "Wobegon state (Keillor)" , "American state, capital St Paul" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
