Caitlyn Jenner considering a run for Senate

Caitlyn Jenner considering a run for Senate

Just after musician Kid Rock tweeted out the possibility of Senate run in Michigan, Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner told a NY radio audience she is eyeing a Senate run in California.

Catsimatidis asked if the rumors were true about her running for planning to run for the senate in California and Jenner said: 'I have considered it'.

Jenner told John Catsimatidis of 970AM that she was exploring her options.

"Over the next six months or so I've got to figure out where I can do a better job". "... I would much rather convince Republicans to do better with (LGBT) issues than to try to convince Democrats to lower taxes and have less regulations and less government. Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that", he said.

"I would look for a senatorial run", Jenner added.

Now, it seems the "reality TV star" has inspired a few other famous faces to consider a new office in Washington D.C. "Working the perimeter of the political scene?" she said.




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

She is one of a string of celebrities possibly throwing their hats into the political arena following the election of reality star Donald Trump to president.

"The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me".

Over the weekend, Caitlyn Jenner indicated she may run for the Senate in California. 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.

Jenner later explained that she hopes to change the perception of the Republican Party.

For her part, Jenner would likely put pressure on the traditional Republican ideology. "Give the people of this country the freedom to go out into the work force without tons and tons and tons and tons of regulations".
