Caitlyn Jenner: 'I Would Look for a Senatorial Run' in GOP

Transgender reality television star, Caitlyn Jenner, is "considering" running for the senate in California.

"I have considered it", Jenner said. The gold medal Olympian joined John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in NY on Sunday and admitted that she had been more seriously considering a shot at politics. Jenner also mentioned her involvement with the American Unity Fund who helps the Republican party improve on LGBT issues.

Jenner added that she hadn't made a decision on the bid but would do so within the next six months or so. The president was well-known outside the political realm before he launched his political campaign, thanks in large part to his reality TV show, The Apprentice. Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene [and] being open to talk to anybody.

Dianne Feinstein, 84, the incumbent Democratic senator from California, hasn't said whether she would seek re-election in 2018.

Given her conversion to a woman and the support she got from the LGBTQ-community, her entry into politics was highly anticipated to better the laws for the community.

If Jenner runs, she will not be the only famous Republican on the ballot - soap actor and underwear model Antonio Sabato running to represent the southern central coast and most of Ventura County in Congress, and singer Kid Rock is toying with running for a Senate seat representing MI. "It was hard to come out as Republican", she told reporters. I would hope in the next generation. that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality.

"I believe in little things like the Constitution".

Caitlyn Jenner's next big event: Politics?

Jenner, a Republican, went on to say that, "The perception of the Republican Party is that they're all about rich white guys trying to make money". As she sees it, there's a need to dispel a certain image of the Republican party. "Give the people of this country the freedom to go out into the workforce without tons and tons and tons of regulations".
