“What you are asking me to do right now on behalf of Minneapolis is to lose on absolutely everything we cared about,” she told the leaders. “Asking Minneapolis to lose everything is something I won’t say yes to.”

Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin, a Minneapolis resident, replied, “I find it just astounding the statement from the mayor that Minneapolis is losing on everything. There’s going to be a line that is going to bring thousands and thousands of people into Minneapolis.”

“To say that Minneapolis has lost everything that they care about fails to keep an eye on what the real prize is here,” he said.
