Elon Musk is backing the Republicans.
In a virtual interview this week, the electric-car entrepreneur and prospective Twitter purchaser, said that he will be voting Republican this fall to, among other things, protect free speech.
“Now this election, I will,” he told the surprised participants at a technology conference Monday in Miami hosted by the “All-In” podcast.
“It’s not some right-wing takeover … but rather a moderate-wing takeover,” he said.
Mr. Musk called his planned purchase “an attempt to ensure that people of all political beliefs feel welcome on digital town square and they can express their beliefs without fear of being banned or shadow-banned.”
