Gobernador de California. Newsom raising money by tying Caitlyn Jenner to Trump

A few hours after Jenner, a Republicano, announced her candidacy, Newsom sent an email blast to his donors tying the celebrity and ex-Olympian to former President Trump and asking for funds.

“'Escuadrón Suicida, Caitlyn Jenner announced she was running for Governor of California as part of this Republican recall attempt,” the email read. “What’s more, she is working closely with Donald Trump’s former presidential campaign manager and the person behind his small-dollar fundraising success.

We’re going to need help keeping up with Caitlyn’s personal wealth and ability to raise money from right-wing donors now that she has Trump’s team with her,” the email continued. “Can you rush a $ 3 contribution to Gavin Newsom’s campaign to stop the right-wing Republican recall. He needs your help to keep up with the Trump team behind Caitlyn Jenner’s campaign.

CAITLYN JENNER ANNOUNCES RUN FOR CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR: 'ESTOY DENTRO!’

Though a number of Republican candidates entered the recall race months ago, Newsom has only recently geared up his own effort against them. That the Newsom team gave name recognition to Jenner’s campaign so quickly suggests she is squarely on their radar.

Newsom advisor Nathan Click added in a follow-up statement to Fox News: “We always knew the Republican recall would be a ludicrous circus full of Trump supporters, which only reinforces how much Californians appreciate Governor’s Newsom’s competent compassionate experienced leadership during an unprecedented series of crises.

The recall is expected to take place in the fall.

Jenner has put together a team of prominent Republican operatives to advise the campaign, incluso 2016 y 2020 Trump presidential campaign pollster Tony Fabrizio and Steven Cheung, a Trump White House and reelection campaign aide who worked on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s successful 2003 gubernatorial recall election victory.

Junto con su anuncio, Jenner lanzó un sitio web. En una declaración en el sitio web, ella apuntó a los demócratas’ bloqueo de partido único en el estado azul profundo durante la última década.

“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 wrote. “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, as she was mulling a run last week, accused mainstream media outlets of not wantinga #lgbt fiscal conservative and socially liberal candidate running.

Y ella promocionó que ella es “un ganador probado y el único forastero que puede poner fin al desastroso período de Gavin Newsom como gobernador.”

But Jenner has a spotty voting history in the Golden State. She did not vote in the 2018 election that led to Newsom’s landslide victory and skipped a majority of elections since 2000, Politico informó.

Records also show Jenner didn’t vote in the presidential primary or the general election in 2016, although she has claimed she voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

Jenner becomes the fourth Republican to announce their candidacy. The others are: Businessman John Cox, la 2018 GOP gubernatorial nominee who lost to Newsom by nearly 25 puntos; former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer; and former Rep. Doug Ose have already launched campaigns.

There is no primary in the recallany number of candidates can run. Splitting the Republican vote four ways could give Newsom the competitive advantage.
