After announcing that he “voted Republican for the “first time” in his life on Wednesday, controversial Tesla CEO and richest man in the world Elon Musk was asked who he “leaning towards” for president in 2024. Musk responded with one word, or rather name.
As mentioned at the top, Musk tweeted out that voted for Republican Mayra Flores in the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District and that there's going to be a "massive red wave in 2022."

Massive red wave in 2022.
Another Twitter user subsequently asked the SpaceX founder if they could assume that Musk would also be voting Republican for president in 2024. Musk initially responded “tbd,” or to be determined.

The same account followed up and asked who Musk might be "leaning towards," and out of all the names he could’ve chosen, he went with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

Also on Wednesday, DeSantis responded to a reporter’s question about he felt about Musk basically endorsing him for 2024.
“I’m focused on 2022,” DeSantis responded, “but with Elon Musk, what I would say is, you know, I welcome support from African-Americans. What can I say?”
The DeSantis quip references Musk’s years being born and growing up in South Africa, which drew the ire of the far-left, including MSNBC’s Joy Reid who called DeSantis “racist” for “mocking Black Americans.” However, DeSantis never mentioned “Black Americans,” only African-Americans.
