Elon Musk announces plans to vote Republican in next election

Tesla CEO Elon Musk revealed on Monday that he will vote Republican during the midterm elections despite supporting Democrats in the past.

Musk shared the information on Monday during a tech conference in Miami.

The switch

“The reality is that Twitter at this point, you know, has a very far left bias,” Musk said. “I would classify myself as a moderate, neither Republican nor Democrat.”

“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically — I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear,” the SpaceX CEO continued. “Now this election I will.”

The importance

Insider reported that he did not clarify whether he meant he would vote for the eventual Republican candidate during the 2024 presidential election, or for a GOP candidate in the up-coming November mid-terms,” the Daily Mail reported.

“Musk’s political views have been thrust into the spotlight since he announced his intention to purchase Twitter. His offer to buy Twitter for $54.20 per share was made public on April 14,” it added.

The new information comes as Musk seeks to finalize his purchase of Twitter, a social platform he has said is clearly liberal in its current bias.

If the deal is completed, the platform may be the largest social media company led by a Republican voter, a major change for American politics and mainstream media.

The announcement may continue to lead to attacks on him from the left, but it has also made him a hero to those who embrace freedom of speech.
