KUWTK star Caitlyn Jenner WILL run for governor of California
KUWTK star Caitlyn Jenner has launched her campaign to run for governor of California.
It’s been reported that Jenner has been meeting with Republican advisers to discuss a run for office, but it’s not clear which party she will run for.
Celebrities muscling into politics is not uncommon – Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger two of the most famous Hollywood turned (unqualified) politicians. As well as former-son-in-law Kanye West’s failed bid at Presidency in 2020 and recent reports that actor Matthew McConaughey is mulling a run for governorship in Texas – with polls suggesting he would have the support to do it.
In a statement, Jenner said: “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
But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress, and special interest over people.
Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”
She expressed her dislike of Gavin Newson, calling his time in office “disastrous”.
Our campaign will be powered by everyday Californians who deserve leadership that is accountable to them, not the special interests in Sacramento.

“This isn’t the California we know,” she said, adding: “This is Gavin Newsom’s California, where he orders us to stay home but goes to dinner with his lobbyist friends.”
Caitlyn Jenner has vowed to listen to people “across the state” to get it “moving in the right direction” and her campaign will be funded by “everyday Californias.”
If she wins, she’ll be the first trans person in the US to hold a state governorship.
