On Tuesday, Wilf acknowledged that the bridge replacement will take priority in the 2008 legislative session but said that it should not eliminate the Vikings stadium from debate.

"I think they have to get the infrastructure issues resolved," Wilf said, "and then move on to other issues that we have to take care of in this state."

'They need to win games'

Whether state leaders take him seriously is yet to be seen. During a meeting this summer, Vikings officials asked Bakk what it would take to gain legislative support for a new stadium.

"I told them they need to win games," Bakk said.

The Vikings have won one game and lost three so far this season.

Staff writer Mark Brunswick contributed to this report.
