Some high-profile lobbying for a new Vikings stadium took place at the Minnesota State Capitol on Wednesday as a bill awaits a vote in the Minnesota House and continues moving through Senate committees. Vikings players Adrian Peterson, Chad Greenway and John Sullivan met with Governor Dayton and talked with lawmakers and fans in the hallways of the Capitol. Sullivan says the stadium is a statewide issue because it helps a lot more than just the Vikings, who only have a handful of games per year. Peterson says they were there to show their support as legislators make the tough decisions.
