Football will be front and center tonight in the Minnesota - Wisconsin rivalry. But if you tune in tonight you'll see a little bit of the Minnesota Vikings push for a new stadium.
MPR News reporter Tom Scheck writes that the Vikings will run ads during the game tonight promoting its effort for public funding for a stadium in Minnesota.
Scheck earlier today added:
Gov. Dayton is ramping up pressure to get a Vikings stadium built. In an op-ed in the Star Tribune, Dayton outlined how he thinks the stadium deal could get done.Vikings ownership say their team contribution stands for Ramsey County only.
Vikings lobbyist Lester Bagley also said they believe the lease in the Metrodome ends at the end of this season.
