Caitlyn Jenner: 'I Would Look for a Senatorial Run' in GOP

Share

After Kid Rock teased the idea of running for Senate in MI last week, former Olympian and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner now says she's considered a run for Senate in California.

"I have considered it, I like the political side of it", she said of a potential run for a Senate seat in California.

'Over the next six months or so, I've gotta find out where I can do a better job.

Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to, you know, and talk to anybody?

"I hope to change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality", she said, adding that she believes the GOP would be unstoppable if it kept its small-government, fiscally conservative values while being more accepting of people who have not traditionally been part of the party.

According to The Hill, Jenner has already expressed an interest in political office, telling CNN in June that she would "seriously look at a run for office".

On Wednesday, Grammy nominated music sensation Kid Rock formally announced his run to represent MI in the United States Senate.

Caitlyn Jenner's next big event: Politics?

Based on the revelations of Jenner and other celebrities, it would seem that President Trump started a trend when he won the highest elected office in the land a year ago. But the political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Kamala Harris is serving her first term, while Sen. As an outspoken Republican and transgender activist (almost an oxymoron), Caitlyn says that she wants to see the Republican party do "a better job" at handling issues that directly impact the LGBTQ community.

In June, USA TODAY reported on Jenner's political views and her on-again, off-again relationship with Trump.

Despite her fame, it could be hard for Jenner to win a Senate seat as a Republican from California.

Both Rock and Jenner have been Donald Trump supporters and could be expected to run as Republicans.

Caitlyn Jenner starred in an E! docu-series called, "I Am Cait". That, I realize is in anyone's mind is different, but you asked me what I think.
