Caitlyn Jenner, former Olympic gold medalist, and transgender activist announced that she’s also considering a Senate run in California. This announcement comes just a couple days after rocker Kid Rock tweeted that he may possibly run for Senate in Michigan.
Both Jenner and Rock are Donald Trump supporters and are expected to run as Republicans.
During her appearance on AM 970 New York, she said that she is thinking about her future in politics.
“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” Jenner stated.
She continued, “The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. 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.”
If Jenner is serious about her run, she would be challenging incumbent Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who just turned 84 in June. Feinstein has not revealed whether or not she is planning to run for reelection in 2018.
Back in April on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, Jenner revealed she would “seriously” consider running for office.
Jenner came out as transgender back in 2015. Even though she is a supporter of Trump, she has criticized Trump for his decision to roll back on transgender students’ protections that Obama put in place.
“I have a message for President Trump from, well, one Republican to another. This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me,” she stated.
Just yesterday she revealed that she is working “behind the scenes” with the Trump administration on LGBTQ issues.
While some have been aggravated at the recent influx of tv stars gaining attention in the political world, in a world where Donald Trump is president, it’s an unfortunate reality we have to face. Fortunately, in Jenner’s case, she likely doesn’t have the slightest chance of winning.
