Caitlyn Jenner announces bid for Governor of California

Well we’ve speculated on it for months and it seems the time has come for Republican Caitlyn Jenner to put her foot in the nominee pool.

The 71-year-old has filed paperwork to launch her campaign and formally announced her run on social media, revealing her new slogan – Caitlyn For California.

Jenner is a registered Republican. She voted for Trump in 2016 but not in 2020, in protest against his position on transgender issues. In an announcement on Instagram, she did not indicate whether or not she’ll run as a Republican or Independent.

The recall election comes amid growing calls by Republicans to oust Newsom. If a Republican wins, it will be the first time they have held the state since 2003, when Arnold Schwarzenegger won.

Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose and businessman John Cox, who lost to Newsom in the 2018 governor´s race, are also running.

A member of her team – which includes many prominent former Trump White House figures – told Axios: ‘She’s running as someone that’s socially liberal and fiscally conservative.’
