Elon Musk Votes Republican in Texas Election, Warns of ‘Massive Red Wave in 2022’

Elon Musk has revealed that he just voted Republican for the “first time” and warned Democrats that a “massive red wave” is coming this year.

In a tweet early on Wednesday morning, Musk said he voted for GOP candidate Mayra Flores, who claimed victory in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District.

Flores flipped the House seat red, becoming the first Republican to win in the deep blue south Texas district in over 150 years.

Musk also predicted a “massive red wave” is coming in 2022 and suggested he is leaning toward voting for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president, should he decide to run in 2024.

In an early Wednesday morning Twitter exchange, Musk wrote: “I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican.

“Massive red wave in 2022,” he added.

When asked if he would vote for a Republican for president in 2024, Musk simply replied, “TBD.”

A Twitter user then asked him, “What are you leaning towards?” and Musk replied, “DeSantis.”

Musks went on to say he previously supported Andrew Yang for president, but “DeSantis has a better chance of winning.”

The Tesla CEO then hinted at how he may financially support political candidates in the future.

“I’m thinking of creating a ‘Super Moderate Super PAC’ that supports candidates with centrist views from all parties,” Musk wrote.

DeSantis, 43, has not yet said whether he’ll make a bid for the White House in 2024.

When asked, he has deflected and suggested that his name keeps coming up on a list of potential GOP candidates because of his track record in Florida.

Musk made a huge splash in April when he made a $44 billion offer to take Twitter private.

An offer that was accepted by the Twitter board.

Since then, Musk put the deal on hold while examining how many fake accounts the social media outlet may have.

However, he says he’s still committed to the deal and is expected to take full control of the company in the fall.

Musk has also talked about gun control measures following the deadly elementary school shooting in Texas.

“I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government,” he said in response to calls for gun control from Democrats.

“Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns.”
