ST. PAUL - Governor-elect Mark Dayton appears ready to support a new Vikings stadium, under certain circumstances and if someone else draws up the plan, but House Republicans are not enthusiastic about it.


Dayton met with House speaker-designate Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove, Tuesday and they emerged from the meeting downplaying any stadium talk.

"We were focused a lot more on jobs and the economy," Zellers said. "It is further down the agenda."
