In the final hours leading up to Election Day, billionaire Twitter CEO Elon Musk is pushing undecided voters to support Republican candidates, a move sure to infuriate liberal Twitter addicts across the country.

The Monday morning message comes months after Musk indicated he was likely to support Republicans in the next election cycle despite previously voting for Democrats.

“To independent-minded voters: Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic,” Musk wrote.

In May, Musk said he was included to change his voting preferences.

“I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically – overwhelmingly. Like, I’m not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear. Now this election, I will,” he said at the time.

Musk has become increasingly vocal about his own personal politics over the past year, even indicating he would rather vote for Ron DeSantis for president instead of Donald Trump.

In June, Musk revealed he supported a Republican for the first time, casting his vote for Mayra Flores but the billionaire indicated it would not be the last vote he cast for the GOP. In a Twitter thread, Musk revealed that while he previously supported Democrat Andrew Yang for president he’s inclined to side with DeSantis in future elections.

“I supported Yang last time, but DeSantis has a better chance of winning.

In another tweet, Musk was asked who he was leaning towards and he simply replied “DeSantis.”
