USA: Elon Musk calls for a Republican Congress to be elected
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – New Twitter owner Elon Musk called for voting for Republican candidates in the Nov. 8 midterm elections in a post on the social network on Monday.
“To independent-minded voters: Combined power limits the worst excesses of either party, so I recommend voting for a Republican Congress as the presidency is a Democrat,” he wrote on Twitter.
Democrats are bracing for a dangerous midterm election Tuesday in the United States, with the potential loss of at least one of the two houses of Congress risking further weakening an already weakened Joe Biden while Donald Trump is fully back in the saddle for the next presidential election .
The Republicans currently have 50 senators, i.e. as many as the Democrats, who, however, control the upper house via the additional vote of Vice President Kamala Harris, and therefore only have to take one seat from their opponents in order to regain the majority there.
The House of Representatives consists of 435 elected members, currently 220 Democrats and 212 Republicans with three vacant seats.
