Pawlenty says new Viking stadium 'highly likely'

Posted by: Rachel E. Stassen-Berger under Minnesota campaigns, Minnesota governor, Gov. Tim Pawlenty Updated: October 20, 2010 - 2:41 PM

Gov. Tim Pawlenty couldn't get the Vikings a new stadium but he thinks his successor will get the team a new home.

"I think it's highly likely, highly likely to get done because it has to," Pawlenty said in answer to a question at a St. Paul Chamber appearance.

Pawlenty didn't say how it would get done and outlined all the well-known barriers to the Vikings getting a new home, but he still thinks a new stadium is in the offing in the next few years.
