Now My Pillow exec Mike Lindell says he will dispatch a team to look at Gov. Ron DeSantis’ stunning win in Miami-Dade County, Florida – calling it a ‘deviation’ (as he takes a break to get advice from his lawyer)
- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis did better than most Republicans, but there have been no claims of widespread voter fraud impacting election
- Mike Lindell, a top supporter of former President Donald Trump who pushes voter fraud conspiracies, called it a ‘deviation’
- He shared the news with Lindell Report co-host Brannon Howse, though was interrupted by his lawyer telling him he shouldn’t reveal his plans
My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell said Tuesday that he’s dispatching a team to look at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ historic win in the county surrounding Miami, calling it a ‘deviation.’
As part of his Lindell Report streaming show Tuesday night, Lindell told co-host Brannon Howse – after being advised not to say anything by his lawyer – that he wanted to find out what happened in ‘Dade County,’ meaning Miami-Dade County, which the popular DeSantis was able to flip red in November.
‘I’m gonna break a little breaking news, Brannon, here right now,’ said Lindell, a top supporter of former President Donald Trump who’s pushed conspiracy theories about all kinds of election fraud.
Lindell told Howse this should come as a ‘surprise.’
‘But do you know what I took my … a lot of my team, at least my cyber team and the IT people. Do you know what country I’m having them focus on? For the next couple weeks?’
As Howse asked which one, Lindell asked for a quick break.
‘It is uhhh, ummm, just hold on a second, talk here,’ Lindell said. ‘I’m getting advice from my attorney here not to say.’

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ 2022 reelection win was a bright spot for the GOP, as he bested Democrat Charlie Crist by around 20 points
When they resumed, Lindell went ahead and told Howse he was targeting Miami-Dade County for suspected voter fraud.
‘What we’re doing now is I’m going after Dade County in the 2022 election,’ he said.
‘Well, for me, I look at deviations, everybody. That’s a deviation. I don’t believe it,’ he said. ‘I want to find out in Dade County. What happened there because it’s a deviation from norm.’
DeSantis did have a far better night than most Republicans, but there have been no claims of widespread voter fraud impacting the race.
Statewide he beat Democrat Charlie Crist by about 20 points.
In Miami-Dade, DeSantis beat Crist by a narrower, but still impressive 11.3 points.
The Miami area saw a number of conservatives move in, leaving blue states amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, Trump made a play for Florida’s Latino population, which is now leaning more right.
When Trump announced his intentions to run for president again on November 15, Lindell pushed that he believed there was widespread fraud during the 2022 races – which explained Republicans’ underperformance.
‘These guys all won,’ Lindell said, pointing to losing GOP candidates, Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Pennsylvania Senate race and Kari Lake in Arizona’s gubernatorial contest.
‘If we would have had a red wave, nobody would have ever listened to me again,’ Lindell told DailyMail.com.
He also said that even DeSantis stood no chance against Trump in a Republican primary.
‘If he runs tonight, it’s over. That’s it. Boom. If he says he’s running, it’s over. There’s no other candidates. They’d be wasting their time and money blah, blah, blah,’ Lindell said.
A string of recent polls show that DeSantis has leapfrogged Trump as Republicans’ favorite 2024 presidential contender.
