It’s official – Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor of California.
The former Olympic champion and reality TV star announced Friday that she has filed the paperwork and will run as a Republican against Democratic incumbent Gavin Newsom.
She declared “Californians want better and deserve better from their governor.”
While Newsom’s current term isn’t up until 2023, an election could happen sooner – he’s facing a possible recall election over his handling of the pandemic.
“California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality,” Jenner wrote.
