Caitlyn Jenner Looking at Politics
Caitlyn Jenner, 67, is considering running in California for the office of Senator. Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein is up for re-election in 2018. Jenner is considering running for this office. Jenner’s focus point is to improve the Republican Party’s stance on lesbian, gay and transgender issues. The former Olympic champion is father to models Kendall and Kylie. Several years ago Jenner became the highest-profile US celebrity to transition to a woman. During that time she changed her name from Bruce to Caitlyn.
Jenner to Make a Decision Within Six Months
Jenner, in a radio interview with New York’s AM 970, said, “I have considered it. I like the political side of it.” She also said that she planned to make a decision within 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 talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that,” Jenner said during the interview. The Malibu resident is a lifelong Republican.
Jenner started her career as an Olympic athlete, bringing home a number of Gold medals for the US. In the Kardashian reality television empire Jenner was the long-suffering husband and father. This was followed by her activism role who transitioned to Caitlyn in 2015.
“I hope to change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality,” she said during the interview. She said she believes the GOP would be unstoppable if it kept its small-government, fiscally conservative values while being more accepting of people who have not traditionally been part of the party.
