Caitlyn Jenner, former Olympic gold medal winning decathlete and a transgender rights activist announced that she will run for Governor of California as a Republican. The fate of an effort to recall California’s Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom is still unknown and will be announced next week.
Jenner’s website took aim at the Democrats’ failed policies in past decade.
“California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality,” Jenner wrote. “But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”
