Elon Musk seeks votes for Republicans

WASHINGTON: Just days after taking control of powerful social media giant Twitter Inc, billionaire Elon Musk on Monday recommended that voters pick Republican candidates for Congress in Tuesday’s US midterm election.

Musk, who is also Tesla CEO, has faced criticism from some groups over his absolutist stance on free speech. They expect his position to increase the volume of misinformation and hate speech on the platform.

His tweet on Monday represented the first time the head of a major social media platform explicitly endorsed a US political party.

Musk directed his Twitter message to what he called “independent-minded voters,” writing: “Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the presidency is Democratic.”

Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!
“Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!”, Musk added on Twitter, which he purchased late last month. Musk has previously said he would vote for Republicans but says he backs moderates on both sides of the aisle.
