ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton’s point man on the Minnesota Vikings stadium push is continuing to make the rounds at the State Capitol.

Ted Mondale stepped into job of Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission chairman two weeks ago. He’s due to testify Wednesday before a committee where he’ll provide an overview of the agency that operates the Metrodome.

Mondale has stressed that Dayton hopes legislators start debating a Vikings stadium proposal early in the session. The governor doesn’t favor a specific site but has called for a multi-purpose covered stadium that can host more than just NFL games.

The stadium issue at the Capitol grows more complicated by the day as the city of Minneapolis seeks money for a Target Center renovation and St. Paul looks for money for a new Saints stadium.
