The world’s richest man has indicated who he would support for president in 2024.

“The billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX revealed his preferred candidate for the White House in 2024 on Wednesday when asked whom he was ‘leaning towards’ by a Silicon Valley Tesla owners club on Twitter,” The Washington Examiner reported.

“DeSantis,” Musk responded after noting that it was yet to be determined if he would cast a ballot for a GOP candidate in 2024.

Musk’s support for DeSantis comes amid a tweeted claim that he cast a ballot for his first Republican political candidate — Rep.-elect Mayra Flores, who won the formerly deep-blue 34th Congressional District in South Texas Tuesday night, becoming the first GOP candidate to do so in 150 years.

In the same tweet, he also predicted huge GOP victories during the November midterms.

“I voted for Mayra Flores – first time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022,” he said.

“Welcome to the Republican Party! We welcome all walk aways from all walks of life. The party of opportunity, prosperity, and freedom is here to stay. We look forward to working together and building a better future for all of America,” the new congresswoman responded.

Her victory further erodes the thin Democrat majority in the House and provides the latest indication that Hispanics are shifting towards the GOP amid record-high inflation under President Biden and a Democratic Congress.

In addition, Hispanics are increasingly upset with Biden’s virtual open-borders immigration policies, which he implemented on day one of his presidency.

Musk announced in May he was planning to vote for some Republican candidates after voting for Democrats his entire adult life, having supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020.

The Daily Wire adds:

Flores beat Democrat Dan Sanchez in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District. The seat was previously held by Rep. Filemon Vela (D) who stepped down earlier this year to become a lobbyist as all signs pointed to a brutal upcoming midterm election season for Democrats.

Flores is now “the first GOP candidate to represent that area of the Rio Grande Valley since 1870,” the Houston Chronicle reported, adding that she is now “the first congresswoman born in Mexico.”

The region has been devastated by Democrat President Joe Biden’s border crisis, something that has turned off many Hispanic voters that typically have voted for Democrats in the past.

Dave Wasserman, U.S. House editor of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, tweeted Tuesday evening: “I’ve seen enough: Mayra Flores (R) defeats Dan Sanchez (D) in the #TX34 special election, flipping an 84% Hispanic Rio Grande Valley seat red.”

In her victory tonight, Republican @MayraFlores2022 flipped 85% Hispanic Cameron County in Texas. Hillary Clinton won Cameron by 33 points in 2016 and Biden won it by 13. The Hispanic shift to the GOP is the most important story in American politics today,” wrote PR specialist Giancarlo Sopo in a tweet containing a graphic showing regional shifts in Texas to Republicans.

“Republicans have been eager to flip the seat as part of their new offensive in South Texas after Biden’s underperformance throughout the predominantly Hispanic region in the 2020 election. Flores and her allies spent over $1 million on TV ads in the special election,” the Texas Tribune reported.

“The dynamic put Democrats into an unusual underdog position in a region of the state they have long dominated. Vastly outspent by Flores, Sanchez repeatedly compared the special election to a David vs. Goliath fight, with himself playing David,” the outlet continued.

MSNBC columnist Eric Michael Garcia sounded a panicked alarm regarding the election’s results, saying that Democrats needed to be doing the same thing, and quickly.

“There is a political earthquake happening in Latino politics in South Texas and there is a reason I have been saying it will be voting like West Virginia,” MSNBC columnist Eric Michael Garcia tweeted a panicked alarm regarding the election’s results. “But like @SeanTrende , I expected this in two decades. #TX34. This should be a five alarm fire for Democrats.”
