On Tuesday, the Republican Governors Association (RGA) reportedly ejected MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell from their spring conference in Nashville.
Lindell claimed that he’d been invited to the event; his spokespersons didn’t respond to The Tennessee Star about these claims. Earlier that same day, Lindell announced publicly on Steve Bannon’s show, War Room Pandemic, that he would confront Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp over the election.
“Absolutely [I will confront them,]” said Lindell. “I don’t understand people that are like that, so I want to understand where they are coming from, and I will have that answer. You know, maybe they won’t talk to me but I certainly am going to ask them – ‘I just want to know why.'”
Lindell added that Kemp, Ducey, and other unnamed politicians opposed audits and didn’t bolster public confidence in the 2020 election.
“All of these politicians – like your Brian Kemp and Doug Duceys that didn’t do anything or tried to maybe block it. It’s very sad,” said Lindell. “I might give them a little grace that they didn’t have the evidence I had back then.”
Lindell said that Kemp was the worst of the two, claiming that Kemp did everything to resist audits. He claimed that Kemp was hiding something.
The Star reached out to both Ducey and Kemp’s offices to inquire whether they’d asked for Lindell’s removal. Neither responded by press time.
Following the conference, RGA posted that Ducey – along with Tennessee Governor Bill Lee, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu – would appear on Fox News with host Sean Hannity.
Lee’s office didn’t respond to request for comment on Lindell’s removal from the event by press time.
Jack Posobiec, a reporter and close affiliate of Lindell, first broke news of Lindell’s removal from the RGA event.
“BREAKING: I’m told MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was denied entry to the Republican Governor’s [sic] Association dinner tonight in Nashville,” wrote Posobiec.
