Caitlyn Jenner announces run for California governor in likely recall election

Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympian and reality TV star, announced Friday she plans to run to replace California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in an expected recall election later this year.

“Estoy dentro! Vale la pena luchar por California,” she tweeted Friday morning.
Jenner, a longtime Republican, filed paperwork in Los Angeles County and announced her intent on her website.
    “California ha sido mi hogar durante casi 50 años. Vine para acá porque sabía que alguien, independientemente de su origen o posición en la vida, podría convertir sus sueños en realidad,” Jenner said in a news release. “Pero durante la última década, Hemos visto el destello del Estado Dorado reducido por un gobierno de partido único que coloca la política sobre el progreso y los intereses especiales sobre las personas.. Sacramento necesita un líder honesto con una visión clara.”
      Jenner, who described herself in the announcement as a disruptor and denounced Newsom’s impact on the Golden State, began exploring an entry into politics earlier this year and has been working with a close group of GOP strategists to lay the groundwork for her gubernatorial bidincluding Brad Parscale, who ran former President Donald Trump’s 2020 quest for reelection and Ryan Erwin, a former senior adviser to Sen. Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaña presidencial.
        Small businesses have been devastated because of the over-restrictive lockdown,” ella dijo.
        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 their friends. Taxes are too high, killing jobs, hurting families, and putting an especially heavy burden on our most vulnerable people.
          A source involved with Jenner’s campaign said the leading transgender rights activist will run as a socially liberal and fiscally conservative Republicana strategy she hopes will appeal to a broad swath of California voters who may be frustrated with the state’s progressive economic policies but remain to the left of the national GOP.
          I think she has policy positions that align with right-of-center Republicans but also voters who fall outside of that category,” this person said.
            Jenner, who spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland and voted for Trump before publicly revoking her support in October 2018 over his anti-LGBTQ policies, has also tapped former Trump campaign aide Steven Cheung as a campaign adviser. Cheung is expected to help with messaging and political strategy, according to the source involved with Jenner’s campaign.
            Recall proponents say they have collected 2.1 million signaturesmore than the nearly 1.5 million needed to get the recall on the ballot. County officials in California have until April 29 to finish verifying the signatures and then report the results to the California secretary of state.
