Gov. Tommy G. Thompson said he needs a miracle to muster enough Senate votes for final passage of a $250-million stadium plan to keep the Milwaukee Brewers in Wisconsin.

Following postponement of a planned Senate vote Tuesday, Thompson said he was still three votes short of the 17 needed for approval in the 32-member Senate.

And he said Thursday, the final day of the current legislative session, would be the day for the Senate "to cut the bullet" and decide whether to endorse the plan to help finance the project through a sales tax hike in five counties. The Assembly narrowly approved the package last week.
