That beefy guy with the mustache that’s selling you a pillow at three in the morning? He says he isn’t running for governor.
Mike Lindell, the informercial king who sells a pillow he dubs “guaranteed the most comfortable pillow you’ll ever own,” denied a report from conservative Web site that he is mulling a run for governor of Minnesota.
Alpha News reported Tuesday that when Lindell was asked about a jump from his pillow success to politics, he said, “I’m not ruling it out.”
Lindell said it’s a misunderstanding. “People have called me, and I’ve said absolutely not,” Lindell said in a telephone interview from Washington. He is attending the inauguration of the next president; he was a major backer of Donald Trump during the campaign and spoke at Trump’s last minute Minnesota rally at the Twin Cities airport.
