JENNER CONSIDERS RUN FOR SENATE
Caitlyn Jenner went from the Olympics to reality television to ... politics?
That’s a strong possibility, according to the 1976 gold-medalwinning decathlete, who told conservative talk radio host John Catsimatidis on Sunday that she’s looking into running for Senate.
“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me,” Jenner said. “Over the next six months or so, I’ve got to 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 side, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside? We are in the process of determining that. Yeah, but I would look for a senatorial run.”
Jenner, a lifelong Republican, did not offer any details regarding a possible timeline, but she could make a run for Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s seat, which will be up for grabs next year. Feinstein, 84, has not said whether she plans to run for re-election.
Jenner has become increasingly vocal about her political positions since coming out as transgender in 2015. She has openly embraced becoming a spokeswoman for the transgender community, which has led her to challenge some of the Republican Party’s more socially conservative positions.
