Tim Michels, the Republican gubernatorial candidate of Wisconsin, recently revealed that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and Florida Republican governor Ron DeSantis are texting buddies, the New York Times reported Monday.
The revelation came while Michels spoke to the Lake County Patriots during a campaign stop. Michels revealed that he had taken Governor DeSantis to a Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field after DeSantis admitted to never attending a game and “wanting to go.”
While watching the game, Michels noticed that DeSantis was texting none other than the future Hall of Fame quarterback.
“We’re sitting there, you know, we’re watching the game, and all of a sudden, I look over and he’s texting and he says, ‘How do you spell Lambeau?’” Michels said, according to the Times.
“I say, ‘Who are you texting with?’ He says, ‘I’m texting with Tom Brady.’ The governor of Florida gets to text with Tom Brady.”
Michels joked that he hoped to text with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers if he won the governorship.
Brady or DeSantis has yet to comment on their reportedly budding text messaging friendship.
