Elon Musk Says He Would Support Ron DeSantis for President in Recent Tweet

• By Cullen Linebarger

He did pledge to maintain political fairness on the platform, however. Considering he has already restored many conservative accounts including Donald Trump's, he will likely maintain this promise.

Musk's backing of DeSantis should not come as a surprise. Back in June, he mentioned he was leaning toward the governor after previously voting for Joe Biden in 2020.

Then in July, he again promoted a DeSantis candidacy. He claimed DeSantis would win so easily against Biden he would not have to campaign. He also said Trump was too old to serve as president again.

Why is his verbal backing of DeSantis significant when the governor has not made a final decision? Because Musk has the potential to single-handedly fund a DeSantis presidential campaign should he choose to do so. Considering Musk is worth almost $200 billion, he could write a nine-figure check without even blinking.

A prospective DeSantis Presidential SuperPAC would be insane not to solicit Musk's financial support. The governor will need every penny to not only get past Trump in the GOP primary, but also to prevail against Biden or whatever left-wing loon the Democrats put up in 2024.

A nine-figure check also might scare off listless primary candidates and clear the field. Why would the likes of Nikki Haley, Larry Hogan, and Liz Cheney compete against both a loaded Trump and DeSantis? Even Mike Pence might decline to embark on a quixotic and doomed campaign as well.
