Elon Musk Makes Rare Political Endorsement

Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk endorsed billionaire Rick Caruso for Los Angeles mayor Friday morning in a rare move.

“Los Angeles is fortunate to have someone like Rick Caruso running for mayor. He’s awesome,” Musk wrote. He added in a second tweet, “It is rare for me to endorse political candidates.”

Musk, who recently announced he is no longer a Democrat, described himself as “moderate.”

“My political leanings are moderate, so neither fully Republican nor Democrat, which I am confident is the case for most Americans,” Musk said.

Caruso is running for Los Angeles mayor as a Democrat, but was a registered Republican three years ago. Caruso’s platform is focused on reducing the city’s crime problem, and it may be spelling political success for the mayoral candidate. In April, Caruso was polling at 24%, ahead of his opponents California Rep. Karen Bass and City Council Member Kevin de León, polling at 23% and 6%, respectively.

“Executive competence is super underrated in politics – we should care about that a lot more!” Musk said in his tweet endorsing Caruso.

    No, stay the hell away from all democrats, they have ruined America. Also we need to get rid of the BiRepublicans too, and add new comer’s for Republicans. Also your twitter JerkOffs have removed me, because I went against the lies the democrat’s support. They tell me to just take my opinion away and rejoin. I have challenged it 3 times now and there is no Feedback at all. You promised to allow us to give our thoughts too. So why aren’t you helping me and all of the other Americans?
