ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton does not think a special legislative session to approve a Vikings football stadium is likely.

"I am doubtful there will be a special session," Dayton told reporters Tuesday.


While the Democratic governor said he has reached out to stadium bill authors Rep. Morrie Lanning, R-Moorhead, and Sen. Julie Rosen, R-Fairmont, they have not received cooperation within the ranks of Republicans who control the Legislature.
