Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk has called on independent voters to back Republicans in tomorrow’s midterm elections in order to contain the excesses of the Democrat party.
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO put out a tweet saying: “To independent-minded voters: shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic”
He continued: “Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!”
Breitbart reports: Musk is a recent convert to the Republican party, and says he cast his first-ever ballot for a Republican candidate when he voted for Mayra Flores in her successful bid to represent Texas’s 34th Congressional District in a special election for the seat this summer.
Although Musk claims he is voting Republican, he insists he is a moderate, opposed to the extreme wings of both the left and right. If he sticks to his statement that shared power is fundamentally good, it could mean he would not back a Republican candidate for President if the GOP takes control of the Senate and House of Representatives tomorrow
