Elon Musk is in the news constantly over his takeover of Twitter, but comments he made during a recent podcast are sure to generate a lot of headlines as well.
The billionaire said that he has always voted for Democrats but that he will be voting Republican for the first time in the upcoming elections.
He will not be alone. Millions of Americans will do the same thing.
FOX Business reports:
Elon Musk says he’ll be voting Republican in upcoming election, possibly for first time
Elon Musk says he will be crossing the aisle to vote for Republicans in the upcoming elections.
Musk announced Monday that he would be voting for GOP candidates in the next election cycle after historically backing almost exclusively Democrats. He made the statement on an episode of the All-In Podcast at a Miami tech conference, as first noted by Business Insider.
“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,” Musk said on the show. “Now this election, I will.”
The audience reacted to the CEO’s statement vocally with laughter and applause.

“The issue here is that the Democrat party is overly controlled by the unions and by the trial lawyers – particularly the class action lawyers,” Musk explained on the show. “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.”
