‘I have considered it. I like the political side of it,’ says transgender activist
It is no secret the line between celebrity and politics is becoming increasingly blurred in America. Not only is the sitting President a former Apprentice host, WWE Hall of Famer and infamous property tycoon but Kid Rock just dropped a massive hint he will be running for the senate.
Caitlyn Jenner is now following suit and considering running for the US Senate to represent California.
The Olympic gold medallist and transgender activist, who is a lifelong Republican and formerly expressed support for Donald Trump, said she had a keen interest in politics.
The 67-year-old, who is a politically conservative Christian, said she planned to make a choice within the next six months or so.
She said: “I got to find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside, kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that.”
The transgender icon is a supporter of President Trump which is likely to curry her little favour in a state where the mogul-turned-politico lost by more than four million votes. However, she has publicly rebuked the President for his regressive transgender bathroom policy and been working to make the Republican Party more inclusive towards the LGBTQ community.
