Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly considering running for governor of California

Quote:
Almost three months after former President Donald Trump left the White House, another Republican reality TV star may be eying a political campaign of their own.

Caitlyn Jenner has been "actively" exploring running for governor of California and has been talking with political consultants about potentially doing so, Axios reported on Tuesday, citing three sources.

Jenner, the former athlete and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, is reportedly being assisted by longtime Republican fundraiser Caroline Wren, who helped organize the Jan. 6 rally Trump spoke at before the Capitol riot. Jenner is a Republican who voted for Trump in 2016, although in a 2018, she criticized him and said she was wrong to think he would help transgender people as president.

"The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president," Jenner wrote at the time. "The leader of our nation has shown no regard for an already marginalized and struggling community. He has ignored our humanity. He has insulted our dignity."

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) is set to face a recall election, and several Republicans have already announced plans to challenge him.

And...she will run for POTUS in 2024.

And she will run against Donald Trump, who, by that time, will have undergone both sex-change, AND, race-change operations.

And to think that this woman won the 1976 men’s Decathlon in the Olympics.

If this Jenner person is the best the GOP can do, then the future looks bleak for the GOP.

Larry Flint would have had a better chance of winning this race.

You might have missed the joke.

No, I get the pun -- Usain Bolt is a long-distance runner.

Did you get the irony of my joke?

Larry Flint was never an Olympic runner, both Usain Bolt and (then) Bruce Jenner were/are.

Larry Flint was in a wheelchair because a right-wing terrorist shot him.

Larry Flint was in a wheelchair because a right-wing terrorist[/url] shot him.
Therefore, he could not "run" in any race, implying that Bolt and Jenner have even lesser chances of winning the "race" for California's office of governor.

TY. Orthogonal but fair.

Newsweek: Caitlyn Jenner for California Governor?  Bookmakers Aren't Convinced

Bookmakers currently have Jenner to win a California governor election at odds of 100 to 1 against -- meaning prospects are not looking good.  The odds suggest Jenner has little to no chance of being successful.

It seems to me that Jenner is just looking for a publicity boost, or maybe just a little more attention.
