Jenner, a longtime Republican, wants to oust Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election.
Caitlyn Jenner, a Republican, announced she is running for governor of California.
Jenner wants to replace Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election. Rumors swirled earlier this month she planned to throw her hat in the ring.
Californians want better and deserve better from their governor. For too long, career politicians have over-promised and under-delivered. We need a leader with a vision and the resolve to see it through. This will be a campaign of solutions, providing a roadmap back to prosperity to turn this state around and finally clean up the damage Newsom has done to this state.
Small businesses have been devastated because of the over-restrictive lockdown. An entire generation of children have lost a year of education and have been prevented from going back to school, participating in activities or socializing with friends. Taxes are too high, killing jobs, hurting families, and putting an especially heavy burden on our most vulnerable people.
This isn’t the California we know. This is Gavin Newsom’s California, where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with his lobbyist friends.

Jenner always distanced herself from President Donald Trump, but has taken in some GOP operatives from his campaigns. From Axios:
She’s assembled a team of prominent GOP operatives including Tony Fabrizio, the top pollster on Donald Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, Ryan Erwin, founder of RedRock Strategies, and Tyler Deaton, president of Allegiance Strategies.
- She’s also hired Steven Cheung, a former Trump White House and campaign communications hand who worked on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s successful 2003 recall campaign.
- Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale, a personal friend of Jenner’s, has helped her assemble her team but doesn’t plan to take an official title on the campaign.
- The campaign’s website and WinRed donation page are set to go live today.
