MyPillow CEO Considering Run For Governor of Minnesota
MINNEAPOLIS: — The MyPillow guy is weighing a run for governor of Minnesota.
If Mike Lindell follows through with a campaign, it could be an early test of where the Republican Party is headed in the post-Donald Trump era.
Lindell would bring a high profile to a race thanks to name recognition built on his ever-present TV ads.
But he would also bring baggage, with his support for Trump that included echoing Trump’s claims of a stolen election.
Some Republican leaders in the state say Lindell’s activism has made it impossible for him to win a statewide election.
