Caitlyn Jenner has announced she is running for California governor.

The former Olympic athlete and reality TV star will run as a Republican in the Democratic stronghold state.

A recall election in California could be confirmed this month after a petition against current governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, reached the number required to trigger a vote.

Voters would be asked if they want Gavin Newsom to stay or another candidate.

According to the Axios news site, Caitlyn Jenner has put together a team that includes some of former President Donald Trump’s advisers.

“Californians want better and deserve better from the governor,” a statement from Caitlyn Jenner said, confirming the news on her Twitter account on April 23.

“For too long, career politicians have over-promised and under-delivered. We need a leader with the vision and resolve to see it through,” she added.

Caitlyn Jenner promised that her campaign will be one of “solutions” and provide a “roadmap back to prosperity to turn this state around”.

She added that she will formally launch her campaign at a later date.

Should the recall election go ahead, it would be the fourth governor recall in US history.

Gavin Newsom has faced criticism for his handling of the pandemic. As infections started to fall, he came under criticism from business owners for still enforcing restrictions.

Caitlyn Jenner described herself as a “proven winner” in her statement, adding that she is the “only outsider who can put an end to Gavin Newsom’s disastrous time as a governor”.

The former athlete, previously known as Bruce Jenner, has been described as the highest-profile American to come out as transgender.

Bruce Jenner came out as transgender in 2015 in an interview with broadcaster Diane Sawyer on ABC, and said the star said she had been wrestling with her gender since childhood.

The former athlete won a gold medal at the Montreal Games in 1976.

Before transitioning, Bruce Jenner was married to Kris Jenner and the pair had two daughters, Kendall and Kylie. The family were stars of the hit reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Caitlyn Jenner said her step-daughter Kim Kardashian had been a big supporter of her transitioning.

California is not a stranger to celebrities running for governor.

Arnold Schwarzenegger won the 2003 recall election, beating Mary Carey and former child actor Gary Coleman.

If she won, Caitlyn Jenner would be one of a small group of transgender Americans to hold such a high-profile role.

In 2020, Sarah McBride became the first transgender state senator in the US after she won her race in Delaware during the 2020 elections. And she was not the only transgender candidate to make history during last year’s election.

Vermont’s Taylor Small, 26, was elected to the House of Representatives, while, in Kansas. Stephanie Byers became the first trans person of color to be elected to a state legislature.


Bruce Jenner is expected to make the official announcement to the world that he is undergoing a transition from man to woman in the upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC’s 20/20.

The former Olympian’s transition has been widely speculated and documented via occasional quotes and photographs.

Bruce Jenner’s transition seemed to be confirmed last month by his daughter Kendall in an Us Weekly interview, but the magazine since retracted the story.

The publication originally quoted Kendall Jenner as saying: “He’s a wonderful man. And just because he’s changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn’t make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he’s a man or a woman.”

However, Kendall Jenner fired back on Twitter: “Shame on US Weekly for making up quotes. I NEVER said those things. I never spoke to them.”

Bruce Jenner – The Interview special will air on Friday, April 24th, at 9/8c on 20/20.


Bruce Jenner admitted he is on the process to become a woman in a highly anticipated interview with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.

The 65-year-old former Olympian opened up about his transition and even revealing his female name.

Bruce Jenner has already taped his interview with Diane Sawyer and revealed many secrets about his bombshell decision to transition from a man to a woman.

A source told US Weekly about the interview: “He did not wear feminine make up during his chat.”Bruce Jenner female name

However, the source said, “he did reveal a name” that he will ask people to call him once he become a woman. The source also said Bruce Jenner “referred to her in the third person”.

Bruce Jenner will be appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 10, which premieres on March 15.

He told Diane Sawyer that he is “mulling a name” for his own reality show, which will chronicle his journey during his transition.

Bruce Jenner married Kris Kardashian in 1991 after five months of dating.

In September 2014, Kris Jenner filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.

The Kardashian-Jenner patriarch told his family he has kept his “true self” inside since he was a child, and even during the ’76 Olympics – when he was considered the greatest male athlete in the world – in his head he was a woman, TMZ has reported.

However, the gossip website says, Bruce Jenner has “never been female” in front of any of his kids, meaning that he never wore female attire around the children.

Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, was immediately supportive when he found out Bruce Jenner was officially transitioning to live as a woman.

But Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, “didn’t react very well” when he first learned of Bruce Jenner’s plans, new reports claim.

However, a source told People magazine, Scott Disick “is now on board,” just like Kanye West was from the start.

Kanye West “is totally fine with it. He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride”, the source told the magazine.

The magazine further shares that Bruce Jenner was completely open with his family about his process.Bruce Jenner transitioning Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

“Bruce told them everything – where things stood, what his plans were for the future, and what everyone could expect,” says People magazine’s source.

“Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined so explicitly.”

The insider also talked about Kris Jenner’s reaction: “Kim went to Kris and asked her how she felt. They had a very long conversation about it. Once Kim was satisfied that Kris was emotionally OK, she was able to give Bruce her unconditional support.”

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West “are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance – complete acceptance”, says the People source.

Bruce Jenner’s transition to a woman is expected to be showcased on the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Bruce Jenner’s mother said she supports his decision to become a woman and admits that she didn’t know of the struggles he dealt with while being a man.

Esther Jenner, 88, said that if her son’s transformation can help others who are struggling with their identity, “then it will all be worth it”.

Bruce Jenner’s mom confirmed on February 3 the former decathlon champion is becoming a woman.

“Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do,” Esther Jenner told Radaronline.com.

“I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.”

Esther Jenner admitted she “did not know of his” inner struggle with being a man until recently.

“I just learned about” his transition, she said.

Bruce Jenner’s mom said she loves her son just the same.

“I support him whole-heartedly,” she said.

“I just love him like I always have.”

Bruce Jenner, she said, will be an inspiration to thousands of others who have long felt themselves women trapped in men’s bodies.

She added: “I have never been more proud of Bruce for who he is, himself as a father, as an Olympian, a wonderful public speaker.

“He instills enthusiasm in people. He’s gifted.”

According to his mother, Bruce Jenner’s transformation will be televised.

Until now, Bruce Jenner’s transformation was a poorly-kept secret as the athlete who once graced a Wheaties box began transforming in front of America’s eyes, appearing in public with long flowing locks and lipstick on his lips.

While his former wife, Kris Jenner, has reportedly been struggling with his decision to become a woman, the Kardashian girls have been supportive.

Bruce Jenner, 65, is a thrice-married father of six who is step-dad to the Kardashian girls and Rob Kardashian.
