Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats have lost a powerhouse with boatloads of money behind him.
Elon Musk, who has voted Democrats for years, at least according to him, will now be backing Republican candidates.
After saying he may “have never voted” Republican, in the upcoming election, he will.
Elon Musk is the richest man in the world, and it is not even close.
For all the money that Jeff Bezos has, Musk is still about $100 billion ahead of him.
That generally means a big payday for any candidate that he would support.
For years, according to Musk, his support has gone behind Democrats.
Now, he stated, “I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically – overwhelmingly.
“Like I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear.
“Now this election, I will.”
He added, “The issue here is that the Democrat party is overly controlled by the unions and by the trial lawyers – particularly the class action lawyers.
“And generally if you see something that is not in the interest of the people on the Democrat side, it’s going to come because of unions – which is just another form of monopoly – and the trial lawyers.”
Now, I do not know how much or if Musk has ever donated politically, but he surely donates to organizations that send money to political candidates.
With his moderate reawakening, I would suspect that Musk will be paying far more attention to where that money goes in the future.
