Minneapolis has re-emerged as a player in the debate over a Minnesota Vikings stadium. Yesterday, Mayor R.T. Rybak met with Governor Dayton in a push to keep the Vikings in his city. Rybak says three possible sites in Minneapolis are cheaper than the Viking's perferred site in Arden Hills. That meeting came after a week of talks held between the governor, lawmakers the N-F-L and the Vikings. Mayor Rybak spoke with Minnesota Public Radio's Cathy Wurzer about Minneapolis' renewed interest in the negotiations.
