Caitlyn Jenner Nixes Possible Run for California Governor

Caitlyn Jenner Nixes Possible Run for California Governor

Caitlyn Jenner is responding to rumors that she’ll be running for the Governor of California.

The rumor started from the GOP that claimed the 71-year-old athlete and reality star “would be a strong candidate in the event that there is an election to recall Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.”

However, there is no truth to it.

“Caitlyn is not running for governor, has never considered running for governor and is very happy doing the work that she is doing to promote LGBT rights and spending time with her 18 grandchildren and 10 children,” Sophia Hutchins, Caitlyn‘s manager and friend, shared with People.

Just a few years earlier, Caitlyn was mulling a career in politics, and was looking at a seat in the Senate.

She had told John Catsimatidis on his “CATS Roundtable” New York radio show that she is working with activist groups to improve the Republican Party’s stance on lesbian, gay and transgender issues.

“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 working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody, or are you better off from the inside? We are in the process of determining that. But yeah, I would look for a senatorial run,” she said.

Just recently, Caitlyn opened up about her relationship with ex-wife, Kris Jenner.
