We have another celebrity of sorts considering a run for Senate from California:
USA TODAY – Just after musician Kid Rock tweeted out the possibility of Senate run in Michigan, Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner told a New York radio audience she is eyeing a Senate run in California.
Jenner told radio host John Catsimatidis that she was mulling whether she could accomplish more as an outsider “working the perimeter of the political scene” or “from the inside.”
California Senate incumbent Dianne Feinstein, who turned 84 in June, has not said whether she plans to seek re-election in 2018.
Both Rock and Jenner have been Donald Trump supporters and could be expected to run as Republicans.
Despite the fact that he’d run as a Republican, Bruce’s biggest goal is to push Republicans toward being even more liberal on LGBT issues:
In June, USA TODAY reported on Jenner’s political views and her on-again, off-again relationship with Trump.
“For me, philosophically, I’m on the Republican side. I have conservative views. But I’m also trans,” she said. “…I would much rather convince Republicans to do better with (LGBT) issues than to try to convince Democrats to lower taxes and have less regulations and less government. I work hard, mostly behind the scenes, to change (Republicans’) views.
This is all the Republican Party needs – as if they aren’t liberal enough on many issues!
