Caitlyn Jenner Says She Has "Considered" a Senate Run
Jul 17 2017
"As ABC News reports, Caitlyn Jenner made her (possible) political aspirations known during an interview on the Cats Roundtable" radio show with John Catsimatidis on 970 AM. "[I] gotta find out where I can do a better job". Can I do a better job from the outside? Working the perimeter of the political scene? "I like the political side of it", she said.
After her transition, the Log Cabin Republicans national executive director Gregory Angelo said that a fascinating thing about Caitlyn Jenner is the great potential that she has to bridge the two worlds of entertainment and politics.
According to Caitlyn Jenner, she has "considered" a senatorial run because she "likes the political side of it". "I would hope in the next generation ... that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality", she said.
"A couple of months ago I spoke in Washington, D.C.to the College Republicans, the young College Republicans, and it was a very enthusiastic crowd". Jenner did not give many specifics, but she became the latest celebrity to express an interest in public office during the Trump era.
For her part, Jenner would likely put pressure on the traditional Republican ideology.
Young adults worry that opening the door to bare-bones insurance plans will make the more comprehensive coverage they know now too expensive or even unavailable.
Despite her fame, it could be hard for Jenner to win a Senate seat as a Republican from California.
