The Minnesota Senate's top Republican says a financing plan for a new Vikings stadium won't be part of a construction projects package.
After a decade of building a solidly Republican resume, Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst is finding it more difficult than expected to make the next step to higher political office.
With a proposed Minnesota Vikings stadium deal foundering, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell headed to Minnesota on Friday in a bid to persuade state legislators of the peril of putting off the issue for one more year.
Minnesota's latest stadium snag has the NFL publicly questioning the state's interest in keeping the Vikings, and league Commissioner Roger Goodell is concerned enough that he is coming for another visit.
Instead, he says, lawmakers are now considering user fees on items such as tickets and concessions to pay for the stadium, possibly with a gambling expansion — a proposal that has been met with resistance from rank-and-file Republican legislators.
