MyPillow Guy Among the Trump Acolytes Picking up the Torch
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Mike Lindell, the businessman better known to the world as the MyPillow Guy, is weighing a run for governor in Minnesota.
If he follows through on 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 unflagging support for Trump that included parroting Trump's false claims of a stolen election.
Some Republican operatives in the state say Lindell's activism has made it impossible for him to win a statewide election.
