'I'M IN': Caitlyn Jenner enters race for California governor

WEST HOLLYWOOD CALIFORNIA- FEBRUARY 05 Caitlyn Jenner attends the 60th Anniversary party for the Monte Carlo TV Festival at Sunset Tower Hotel

Axios first reported on Friday that the 71-year-old retired Olympian, reality TV star, and transgender rights activist had filed the necessary paperwork in her quest to replace current Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in a potential recall election, which could take place this fall, per the AP. We saw how that turned out.

Jenner becomes the fourth Republican to announce their candidacy.

Jenner said she planned to "turn this state around and finally clean up the damage Newsom has done".

"California has been my home for almost 50 years", Jenner said in a statement. She also split with Trump after he said transgender people would not be allowed to serve in the USA military.

Privileged trans person Caitlyn Jenner, whose new campaign website and merch store features photos of her and her dog in her vintage Austin-Healey, posted to Twitter Friday morning, "I'm in!", surprising no one. Her ties to Trump are also a concern as the former president remains broadly unpopular in California outside his GOP base, as well as his former political operatives.

Other Republicans who plan to run in the recall include businessman John Cox, who faced Newsom in the 2018 election, and former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer.

Her campaign did not respond to a request for an on-camera interview.

Jenner, as she was mulling a run last week, accused mainstream media outlets of not wanting "a #lgbt fiscal conservative and socially liberal candidate running".

The recall effort largely has been fueled by criticism of Newsom's handling of the pandemic, which shuttered schools and closed thousands of businesses.

If there is one, voters would be asked whether the governor should be recalled and if so, who should succeed him. "Gavin Newsom's California, where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with his lobbyist friends".

Jennifer Finney Boylan, a transgender writer and professor at Barnard College, appeared on multiple episodes of Jenner's TV show, "I Am Cait" and considers her a friend.

Jenner supported Trump in 2016 but later criticized his administration's reversal of a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms.

"I don't think she's going to use it to further her own goal, but rather bring awareness to what's happening here", Dunsmore said. According to the Los Angeles Times, Jenner was seen dining Thursday with Parscale, Trump's former campaign manager who was associated with the Stop The Steal rally that preceded the Capitol insurrection on January 6.

Newsom advisor Nathan Click added in a follow-up statement to Fox News: "We always knew the Republican recall would be a ludicrous circus full of Trump supporters, which only reinforces how much Californians appreciate Governor's Newsom's competent compassionate experienced leadership during an unprecedented series of crises".

Jenner also could face questions about a 2015 fatal crash in which she rear-ended two cars.
