(LifeSiteNews) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he is currently interested in voting for Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis for president in 2024. The Florida governor has not declared his candidacy yet.
Musk, who is in the process of possibly buying Twitter, made the comment after he shared that he voted for Mayra Flores, a Texas Republican who won a special election in the 34th Congressional District. The seat has been held by Democrats for decades.
“I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk tweeted Wednesday.

“I assume republican for president 2?” Tesla Owners Silicon Valley asked. Musk has recently said he is a Republican. Musk said “tbd [to be decided]” but when asked a follow-up about who he was “leaning towards,” Musk said DeSantis.
“I supported [New York entrepreneur Andrew Yang] last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning,” Musk tweeted.
DeSantis responded to the news by making a joke about Musk, who is White and from South Africa, being an African-American.
“I’m focused on 2022,” DeSantis, who is up for re-election in November, said on Wednesday when asked about the Tesla CEO’s comments. “But with Elon Musk, what I would say, is that I welcome support from African-Americans, what can I say?” the Florida Republican said.

Many conservatives have taken an interest in Gov. DeSantis due to his opposition to COVID lockdowns, coerced vaccinations, and LGBT indoctrination. He has also supported pro-life legislation, opposed the chemical and genital mutilation of children, and has worked to eliminate Chinese Communist Party influence in his state.
Dave Rubin (left) hosts one of the most popular conservative chat-shows on YouTube, but we now know his views are as extreme as many on the left.
Not only are Rubin and his homosexual partner using surrogate mothers to bear two babies, thus deliberately depriving the children of their true mothers' care once born, but he also admitted those babies would have been aborted if found to have severe disabilities.
SIGN the petition telling Dave Rubin that true conservatives protect life and uphold the right of children to be raised by their mothers.
Mr. Rubin recently said he also supports abortion up until 12 weeks, compounding the regrettable pro-eugenics stance he has taken towards unborn babies with severe disabilities.
There are few things more tragic in our world today than the disposable attitude of many people towards innocent human life, but that is exactly what Rubin thinks is acceptable.
This must be called out - it's simply abhorrent to treat the disabled, the unwanted, and the vulnerable with such callous disregard.
Tell Dave Rubin that his pro-eugenics views have no place in a humane society.
Can you imagine finding out your parents would have aborted you if you had a severe disability?
Well, that's unfortunately what will happen to the children Rubin raises if they someday read his latest book, "Don't Burn This Country".
There he shares that he and his family's decision would have been to "terminate the pregnancy" if a severe disability was found in one of the babies now being borne by their surrogate mothers.
Rubin must understand how cruel this entire situation is, not only for the mothers and their children who will be taken away, but also for disabled people to know they are essentially thought of as "lives unworthy of life."
Real conservatives must speak up now and tell Rubin that his pro-abortion views are abhorrent.
Mr. Rubin's public split with the left is to be welcomed, but "conservative" leaders like him will do much more harm than good if they continue using their platform to undermine the family and the right of children to be born.
If we let these cornerstones of society be attacked from within, what hope have we of building a culture we can be proud to hand on?
Make a stand today for unborn children and their mothers - tell Dave Rubin that he's wrong.
True conservatives cannot afford to take the easy shortcut of ignoring Rubin's cruel position, lest we continue to be shunted further left, becoming radical liberals in everything but name.
So, please SIGN and SHARE this petition today,

DeSantis has said he was open to suing Twitter on behalf of Florida residents if the Big Tech company did not consider Musk’s offer. The state owns shares in the company through its pension funds.
“For me, I think some of these Big Tech companies clearly have been problematic,” Gov. DeSantis said. “I think some of the investments where you look at like the Communist Party of China and what they have been involved in, not just state-owned stuff, but these other companies [backed by China],” he said in April.
He was optimistic about Musk’s ability to turn around Twitter.
“We do need to see much more diversity of thought in terms of some of these companies,” Gov. DeSantis said. “I think some of the companies should be broken up, because I just think they’re too big and I think they have too much power over our economy and our freedoms.”
