Minnesota Rep. Morrie Lanning, R-Moorhead, announced he is retiring from a 39-year career in politics after a legislative session where he led the House push for a new Minnesota Vikings stadium. He was asked to talk about the key players in the campaign.
Larry Spooner loves Minnesota Vikings football so much that he has taken more than 40 days vacation over the years to ask legislators to approve a new stadium.
But as he parked his van in front of the Minnesota Capitol on Monday, where it will return later this week as lawmakers consider a stadium, he said his support of building a new stadium goes well beyond love of the game and tailgating. He also wants to help his state.

Many of the 22,000 public employees out of work in Minnesota’s budget impasse say they will get through the extended layoff by tapping into personal savings, relying on a spouse’s income or unemployment checks, and making household spending cuts.
