Reality television star Caitlyn Jenner announced plans Friday to run for governor of California.
“I’m in! California is worth fighting for,” Jenner tweeted.
Jenner, a Republican, also filed paperwork to seek the governorship and has hired several well-known Republican operatives to guide her burgeoning campaign.
She’s hoping to unseat Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who faces an all-but-certain recall election later this year.
Jenner, the Olympic gold medal winning decathlete turned transgender rights activist and nationally known TV personality, had been mulling a bid. Word of the decision was first reported by Axios and confirmed by Fox News.
