Elon Musk Says He Is Leaning Towards Supporting Ron DeSantis In 2024

Elon Musk has been garnering a lot of attention around politics in recent weeks since becoming apparently red-pilled.

This week he indicated that he is leaning towards suporting Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in 2024.

Of course, it’s very early and DeSantis hasn’t even indicated his intentions to run. Also, if Trump runs, he is likely to get the nomination.

Still, it’s fun to see Musk musing about supporting a Republican.

Ron DeSantis appears to be winning the Elon Musk primary.

Tucked in a Twitter thread where Musk, the world’s richest man worth an estimated $205 billion, discussed midterm politics and the fact he voted Republican for the first time during Tuesday night’s primaries, he said DeSantis at the moment is who he would support for president in 2024.

Musk was asked on Wednesday morning by a Twitter user called “Tesla Owner Silicon Valley” if he would vote Republican in the presidential race, to which Musk replied “tbd.”

“What are you leaning towards?” the user followed up.

“DeSantis,” he replied.

DeSantis has brushed off questions about 2024, but in nearly every early 2024 straw poll has either finished first or second when competing only with former President Donald Trump, as the rest of the potential 2024 GOP field trails by wide margins. DeSantis has also been raising huge sums of campaign cash and has a growing base of support among conservative coast-to-coast.

Musk made his comment about DeSantis in reply to a tweet about Texas Republican Mayra Flores winning a special election and flipping a congressional seat long held by Democrats. She will now become the first Mexican-born congresswoman.

If Trump doesn’t run, DeSantis would be a great choice for the GOP.

It’s still a long way off though, and it’s important to remember that.
