"it was an informal conversation," Dayton said. He said Wilf seemed "hopeful and I said I was hopeful (a new Vikings stadium) would be passed through the legislative process this session."
Dayton said his hopes rest, in part on the fact that: "We have some very good authors in both the House and the Senate and bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate."
Dayton said since the 10 minute chat wasn't planned, it didn't delve into details.
"I wasn't planning on meeting with him so I didn't have anything specific to discuss," the governor said. Their chat ranged from the fact that Wilf's 26-year-old son just got married (and Dayton's slightly older sons are still single) to Dayton's belief that a statewide car rental tax and a metro hotel tax should be part of the package.
