Former U.S. Olympic athlete and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Caitlyn Jenner is considering running for governor of California as Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a recall election, Axios has reported.

Jenner, a vocal Republican and previous Trump supporter, is said to be “actively exploring” a run for governor of California, three sources close to the situation told Axios.

Jenner has been consulting with longtime GOP fundraiser, Caroline Wren, about her candidacy – whom Jenner met through her work with the American Unity Fund, a GOP nonprofit focused on LGBT issues.

The former Olympic gold medalist came out as a transgender woman in 2015 and has since been a vocal advocate for the LBGTQ community and transgender rights.

According to The Out for America 2020 report from the LGBTQ Victory Institute, an organization that follows and advocates for LGBTQ+ American political candidates, there was a 21% increase in the number of out LGBTQ+ elected officials in the United States in 2020. 5% of those were transgender.

79.7% of LGBTQ elected officials ran as Democrats, 2.7% ran as Republicans, 2.3% ran as Independents and 15% ran as “other,” according to the Out for America demographics.

Over 50 openly transgender candidates ran for office in 2020, however, about half lost the primary races or dropped out.

In the 2020 general election, voters elected six transgender candidates to state office.

Only 0.009% of elected officials in the U.S. are transgender.

“And I can tell you the time I spent with hundreds of workers walking up and down that line it was stunning to see how they had turned on the administration none of them actually bought the visit they thought it was more political than it was supportive” she added about her discussions with workers on the ground.

“It’s all about votes, trying to get votes” said one worker. “It’s a show” said another. Individuals also lamented “they didn’t forget about us During the pandemic. We were building cars and trucks, we were working” only to be left behind now.

Carter said it was evident that immediately after the brief show of “support” Biden immediately left, and got straight on his plane to head to Silicon Valley for a fundraiser.
