Caitlyn Jenner Considering Running a Campaign for California Senate
Will Caitlyn Jenner end up in our nation's capital?
The Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist said she was looking into a run for the US Senate.
She voted for Donald Trump in the election and identifies as Republican.
The former Kardashian family member spoke with John Catsimatidis on the Cats Roundtable radio show on 970 AM on Sunday, July 16.
She mentioned that a political track could be in her future.
“I have considered [a Senatorial run]. I like the political side of it,” she said on the radio.
“Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that."
Jenner, who has a passion for LGBTQ issues, has worked with the American Unity Fund to get GOP lawmakers more on board with the times.
“That’s kind of my issue,” the former athlete said.
The 67-year-old came out as a transgender woman in 2015 and made it clear she would attempt to change how people perceive the Republican Party.
“The perception of the Republican Party is that they are all about rich white guys trying to make money. I would hope in the next generation … that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality,” she said.
The reality star voted for fellow reality star Donald Trump in the 2016 general election but has since expressed her upset at how the administration is treating LGBTQ policies.
If the famous Republican decides to run, she would be up for current Senator Dianne Feinstein's seat.
Dianne is up for re-election in 2018 but has not said if she's running yet.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has also hinted that he may run for office in the future, which many fans are excited about.
