ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota Vikings can finally point to a major victory in the franchise quest for a new stadium. Tuesday could make it two in a row.  The Minnesota House gave its approval Monday night to a stadium financing proposal. In the process, lawmakers substantially raised the required private contribution toward the $975 million facility. It’s a change Vikings’ owners find troubling.  The state Senate plans to act on a competing version Tuesday. Passage there would send the bill into final negotiations and put the team closer than ever to a replacement for the aging Metrodome. The Vikings have been after a new stadium since the mid-1990s.   Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton supports public financing for a new stadium and is expected to sign a bill if it reaches him.
