Musk says that he will support Ron DeSantis in 2024 as the next president
Musk recently spoke about how he has intended to change the political party he sides with, from Democrats to Republicans. He further says that though he had voted for Democrats in the past, further on, he will vote for Republicans. Musk further calls the Democrats a “Division of Hate.” Musk says that the liberals have been launching unnecessary political attacks on him, which he does not appreciate.
Musk says that the Democrats are a division of hate, and he can’t support them anymore. He talks about how for the first time, he voted for a Republican in the special election held in Texas for a House seat.
“I voted for Mayra Flores the first time I ever voted Republican,” Musk tweeted at 3:28 AM on Wednesday. Recently a special election was held in Texas’ 34th Congressional district. Mayra Flores won the election defeating Democrat Dan Sanchez. This victory is not only a victory for Flores but also all the Republicans. Flores’ success was a big surprise to everyone, considering the majority of the voters in the district are Latinos. Winning this election has put the Republicans on top of the charts, which raises great concern among the Democrats for the upcoming midterm elections.
Musk’s thoughts about DeSantis
Musk was later asked whether he would vote Republican in the upcoming presidential elections. Musk replied that he had not yet decided, but if he were leaning towards someone, it would be DeSantis. DeSantis rose to fame during the coronavirus pandemic. Musk holds high regard for DeSantis and thinks that he will make a good president for the United States of America. As of now, DeSantis has not expressed any opinions about him competing in the 2024 elections. Currently, he is seeking re-election to a second term for the governorship. Even though DeSantis has not said anything about running in the 2024 presidential elections, the Republicans view him as a strong candidate. Governor Ron DeSantis is happy to hear all the nice things Musk had to say about him. He feels that the support of the wealthiest man in the world to the Republican party will do wonders.
