When it comes to the $846 million construction borrowing package being debated at the Capitol, many wonder if it's it too big to fail.
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.
