Vikings Stadium Update: One Rep To Change Vote To 'Yes' Because Bill Will Create Jobs

Stop us if you've heard this one. Today is a very important day for the potential construction of a new football stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. This is just the latest in a long string of "important days," but we're super serious this time when we tell you that this one is actually important. As already noted, there's a house vote that could wrap-up before this article is even posted or that could run well into the night. It's one vote in a long line of votes, but it's an important milestone nonetheless.

It's hard to tell at this point if it's likely to succeed - the supporters and detractors seem to be equally vocal and equally unshakable, though there is some movement that seems to lean toward the positive side. According to Patrick Kessler on Twitter, Rep. Ryan Winkler will change his vote to a "yes" simply because the Vikings stadium is likely the only job-producing project to come out of the Legislature this session.

Of course, we'd all prefer that people vote for the stadium because they want to keep the Vikings in Minnesota, but that's not how politics work. Maybe the stadium will get pushed through because enough people want that technicality on the Legislature's history. Who knows? At this point, after years of trying, the Vikings will take what they can get.
