In her announcement, Jenner did not disclose her political affiliation, calling herself a lifelong “compassionate disruptor” and a “proven winner and the only outsider who can put an end to Gavin Newsom’s disastrous governor.”
“In the next few weeks, I will be meeting with Californians from all over the state,” she said, “to hear their voices and finally move this state in the right direction. I will not lose the importance of this decision. The sacrifice is meaningful . But the responsibility is great, and I can hardly wait to lead, help and, above all, disrupt the status quo again … I’m in! “
If it runs, Jenner would join a growing list of California celebrities who embarked on political careers after the late actor and former president Ronald Reagan and Terminator Star and former governor Arnold Schwarzeneggerand several people in the entertainment business who were on a list of more than 130 people who voted in a 2003 gubernatorial recall election, such as the late one Larry Flynt and actors Gary Coleman, Watermelon-battered ’80s comedian Gallagher, Angelyne and adult movie star Mary Careyplanning to run again to try to replace Newsom.
