Musk had previously expressed support for DeSantis. Last November he said he wanted someone “centrist.”
“My preference for the 2024 presidency is someone sensible and centrist. I had hoped that would the case for the Biden administration, but have been disappointed so far,” Musk said on Twitter.
“Yes,” he replied in a tweet when asked if he would support DeSantis in 2024.
“As a reminder, I was a significant supporter of the Obama-Biden presidency and (reluctantly) voted for Biden over Trump,” the Twitter owner said.
DeSantis currently trails President Donald Trump by a large margin in most Republican primary polls. We’ll see how his official campaign launch will affect his numbers.
