Elon Musk goes Republican, and Mayra Flores makes history


Billionaire Elon Musk officially jumped ship from the Democrats and confirmed his switch to Republicans on June 15th. 

 “I voted for Mayra Flores,” he posted on Twitter, referring to the Republican candidate who flipped a Democratic House district in South Texas.

 “First time I ever voted Republican. Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk added.

The SpaceX and Tesla CEO is relocating major portions of both his mega companies to Texas. And SpaceX has developed a major spaceport facility and community, Starbase, TX in Cameron County.

Musk also resides at Starbase in a little house when he’s not globetrotting. And it is here that he maintains his home address. This makes the billionaire a constituent of the newly elected Flores.

And Flores has thanked Musk for his vote and for his investment in her community. 

Mayra Flores defeats all odds

Flores defeated Democrat Dan Sanchez by eight points in a special election in her run for the open congressional seat.
