(CBS) – Are the Minnesota Vikings going to follow in the footsteps of the Lakers and leave the Twin Cities for Los Angeles?

Governor Mark Dayton of Minnesota admits the NFL’s Vikings could leave for a new city.

On Tuesday Dayton said that there will be no state or local tax increases to fund a new stadium for the Vikings, creating a $1.1 billion dollar gap in the proposal for a new stadium north of the Twin Cities.

The Vikings lease at the Metrodome expires at the end of the season.

Dayton is planning on holding special legislative sessions before the end of the year to come up with a solution to their stadium issues.

 The Minnesota Twins recently got a new stadium as did the University of Minnesota’s football team.  

Meanwhile, Los Angeles has been without a pro football team since the Rams and Raiders left town.
