Independence Party gubernatorial candidate Tom Horner sketched out a plan on Thursday for a new Vikings stadium that would have the team paying 40 percent of an estimated $900 million project.
One Minnesota governor hopeful framed his open concession to raise taxes as his "Walter Mondale moment."
"My first message to the legislature is batten down the hatches, it's going to be a busy session," Horner said.
Horner told The Associated Press that the state would pay the rest through a penny-per-drink liquor tax statewide, plus revenue from a racino and a tax on game tickets.
