The 71-12 months-outdated is reportedly doing her due diligence about presumably difficult present Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, who’s probably going through a recall election.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 no less than severe sufficient in her political issues right here that she’s being assisted by Caroline Wren, a longtime Republican fundraiser. Wren is greatest recognized publicly as a earlier adviser to Trump’s re-election marketing campaign; she additionally helped arrange the previous President’s notorious rally on January 6, 2021 that boiled over into the assault on the U. S. Capitol Constructing. Yeah…
Wren reportedly initially met Jenner by means of their collective work with the American Unity Fund, which is a proper-wing non-revenue 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 ultimately changed by Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger. Wouldn’t or not 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 consultants, however forgive us if we have now a tough time seeing Jenner have any type of path to victory right here — ought to she select to really mount a marketing campaign for the workplace.
In any case, her celeb background and inextricable ties to Hollywood and the Kardashian household will nearly definitely be a flip-off to GOP voters within the state’s conservative San Joaquin Valley cities like Bakersfield, Visalia, and Fresno. To not point out the actual fact she’s a transgender girl 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 help of Trump — even after she tried to stroll that again over the past couple years.
Realizing that, what constituency might she presumably need to fall again on? There’s no means the previous I Am Cait star might truly win the race for governor, might she?!
