Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX and – much to the chagrin of the left – the new owner of Twitter, has called on independent voters to support Republicans in tomorrow’s midterm elections to contain the excesses of the Democratic Party.
“To independent-minded voters: Power sharing curbs the worst excesses of both parties, so I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the presidency is a Democrat,” Musk said in a tweet.
“Hard-core Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who really decide who’s in charge!”
Diehard Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who really decide who’s in charge!

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said in an early Wednesday tweet that he voted for Republican candidate Mayra Flores in the recent special election for Texas’ 34th congressional district, also predicting a “surge massive red in 2022”. After his historic win, Flores responded to Musk saying, “Welcome to the Republican Party! We welcome all walkers from all walks of life. The celebration of opportunity, prosperity and freedom is here to stay. We look forward to working together and building a better future for all of America.
In a recent tweet, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said he voted for Republican candidate Mayra Flores in the special election for Texas’ 34th congressional district. Flores won the election, overturning a seat that had been under Democratic control for four decades.
Although Musk claims he votes Republican, he insists he is a moderate, opposed to extreme wings of the left and right. If he sticks to his statement that power-sharing is fundamentally good, it could mean he wouldn’t support a Republican presidential candidate if the GOP took control of the Senate and House of Representatives tomorrow. .
