Staunch Trump supporter Mike “Pillow King” Lindell has questioned Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s recent landslide re-election win in the Sunshine State.

In what could be a precursor to a coming battle between the former President and current Florida Governor, Lindell, a major influencer for Trump’s base, is throwing shade at DeSantis, claiming his victory in deep blue counties in Florida smack of voter fraud.

Trump has already announced his candidacy for 2024. DeSantis has not said if he will run for President.

Lindell specifically questioned the big victory DeSantis won in Miami-Dade County on “The Lindell Report.” The county, which has traditionally gone for Democrats in past elections, swung big for DeSantis during the Florida gubernatorial race by 11 points. 

No evidence of fraud has circulated, and before the election, a number of observers had pointed to the county and suggested that DeSantis had a chance to pull off a big victory.

But Lindell went after DeSantis over his unprecedented victory in traditionally blue Miam-Dade.

“I look at deviations, everybody. That’s a deviation. I don’t believe it,” Lindell said, later adding that “I’m going to find out in Miami-Dade County – what happened there because it’s a deviation from the norm.”

The often controversial MyPillow CEO is being sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems regarding his comments about the 2020 election and their voting machines. Lindell has pushed dubious claims about the 2020 election despite the fact that no widespread fraud was found, and multiple audits in different states have affirmed the states’ original results in the 2020 election.

While Republican candidates and other members of the party have often targeted election denialism claims at Democrats, the MyPillow CEO’s comments are unusually targeted at another Republican.
