Caitlyn Jenner Files Paperwork to Run for CA Governor

Published

We reported last week on former Olympic athlete and reality TV Star Caitlyn Jenner‘s consideration of running for California Governor in the Newsom Recall election.

With a Recall election pretty much a foregone conclusion (1.2 million votes already certified by the Secretary of State with 1.459 million required), it looks like Jenner has decided to make it official, filing the $4,200 to make her run for governor.

Jenner would run on a “socially liberal, fiscally conservative” platform. Jenner even has put together a team of known GOP pollsters and strategists to lend an air of weight to her run.

While electing a transgender Governor in California would be a newsworthy first, the reality TV-star’s bid is being viewed suspiciously. The 2003 Recall of Gray Davis gave us film star Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose eight years in office tanked the Republican Party and helped to usher in the progressive stronghold that exists in the state today.

So, registered Republicans lining up to support Jenner’s candidacy is not necessarily a done deal. With an established politician in former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and 2018 Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox in the ring, a Jenner run could do little more than divide the vote needed to get a Republican back in California’s highest office.
