Elon Musk Announces Departure from Democrat Party

By WMAL.com

In an announcement that comes as little surprise to most, Tesla CEO and prospective new owner of Twitter Elon Musk announced that he will be voting for Republican candidates this fall after a lifetime of voting “overwhelming” for democratic candidates.

While speaking at a tech conference in Miami, Musk told attendees, “I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically — I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear.” He continued, “Now this election I will.”

Musk did double-down on the fact that he remains a moderate with a vision for Twitter that provide political preference no neither party. “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.”

While Musk’s bid for Twitter has hit a sticking point over questions surrounding the percentage of Twitter users that classify as bots, he announced on Twitter last week that he is “still committed to the acquisition.”
