Pro-Trump MyPillow inventor teases possible Minnesota gubernatorial run

MyPillow inventor Mike Lindell is eyeing a potential bid for Minnesota governor in 2022, he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

“In case we do anything political, we’re setting up the stage,” Lindell told the Star Tribune in a Thursday profile promoting his recently published autobiography “What Are The Odds? From Crack Addict To CEO.”

The 58-year-old has been a longtime, vocal supporter of President Trump. Last March he said Trump was “chosen by God” to run for president against Hillary Clinton in 2016. 


Lindell, who is preparing a series of pro-Trump rallies across Minnesota, was recently spotted at a New Year’s Eve party at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort. 

“I’m even more all in,” Lindell said of his support for Trump. “Just because I know it is so important.”

Last year, he was recruited as a potential challenger to Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.) and is now seen as a likely contender against Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D). 

Lindell calls himself an “honorary chair” of the Trump campaign in Minnesota.
