Gov. Mark Dayton was at the University Club in St. Paul when he bumped into Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf on Thursday night, the MinnPost.com reported
Wilf was there to chat with lawmakers and Dayton had an unrelated meeting when an unplanned 10-minute conversation took place between the two, the Star Tribune reported.
Dayton said Wilf seemed "hopeful and I said I was hopeful (a new Vikings stadium) would be passed through the legislative process this session," according to the Star Tribune.
Nothing specific was discussed since the meeting was not planned, Dayton said, the Star Tribune reported.
