Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla and a potential buyer on Twitter, tweeted that the city “is so lucky to have someone like Rick Caruso running for mayor,” explaining that the real estate mogul be great”.

Caruso and Musk are two of the richest people in the world, according to Forbes’ calculations: Caruso’s $4.3 billion fortune, largely thanks to investments in Southern California malls, makes him become the 655th richest person in the world, while Musk’s $220.9 billion fortune far exceeds that of anyone else.

Caruso, 63, a lifelong Republican who recently switched to the Democratic Party, is one of the top three candidates running for mayor of Los Angeles.

Primaries Tuesday will determine the two candidates who will appear on the ballot in Los Angeles in November – or possibly determine the next mayor altogether if one candidate gets more than 50% number of the votes.
