It was only a matter of time before this happened.
Former Olympic gold medalist and current transgender model, Caitlyn Jenner, has officially filed the paperwork to run against Gavin Newsom in an upcoming recall election.
A report from Axios reads:
Former Olympic decathlete and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner has filed her initial paperwork to run for governor of California and will officially announce her bid later today, her campaign tells Axios.
The big picture: Jenner, a longtime Republican, is seeking to replace Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election, hoping her celebrity status and name recognition can yield an upset in the nation’s most populous state.
But in deep-blue California, she’s decidedly not branding herself as a Trump Republican even as she’s counting on some of the former president’s advisers to drive her strategy.
Jenner said in a statement that “Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision” and that “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.”
Newsom has been doing a terrible job as governor of California especially during the coronavirus pandemic. People can’t wait for him to be recalled and hopefully a better governor will lead California.
