The 71-year-old is reportedly doing her due diligence about presumably difficult present Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, who’s doubtlessly dealing with a recall election. Clearly, Jenner’s potential presence within the race as a Republican (and former supporter of Donald Trump!) would draw a lot of consideration to any attainable race.
In line with the report, Jenner is at the very least severe sufficient in her political issues right here that she’s being assisted by Caroline Wren, a longtime Republican fundraiser.

S. Capitol Constructing. Yeah…
Wren reportedly initially met Jenner by way of their collective work with the American Unity Fund, which is a right-wing non-profit group targeted on aligning GOP and LGBT points.

California has a notable recall historical past, too. In 2003, Governor Grey Davis — a Democrat — was recalled and finally changed by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger. Wouldn’t it’s one thing if 20 years later, one other celeb changed a recalled Governor?! Particularly if that celeb was Caitlyn Jenner?!
We’re not political specialists, however forgive us if we’ve got a tough time seeing Jenner have any form of path to victory right here — ought to she select to truly mount a marketing campaign for the workplace.
In any case, her celeb background and inextricable ties to Hollywood and the Kardashian household will virtually definitely be a turn-off to GOP voters within the state’s conservative San Joaquin Valley cities like Bakersfield, Visalia, and Fresno. To not point out the very fact she’s a transgender lady goes to show off the Trumpian base. Let’s not act like that’s not a factor.
And progressive voters have lengthy since deserted Jenner after her constant assist of Trump — even after she tried to stroll that again over the past couple years.
Figuring out that, what constituency may she presumably should fall again on? There’s no method the previous I Am Cait star may truly win the race for governor, may she?!
