Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner is the latest celebrity to reveal she has considered launching a run for Senate, telling radio host John Catsimatidis she is in the process of determining her future in activism and politics. “I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” Jenner, who is a Republican, told Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York.
“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that,” she said. “Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run,” she continued. – The Hill
If true (and lets hope not) that would have Jenner running against either Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein in 2018 or Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris who doesn’t face reelection until 2022.
During an appearance last Thursday on the ABC talk show “The View,” Jenner said he has sat down with any members of Trump’s administration to talk to them about the LGBT community. But she wouldn’t name names.
