“California has been my home for nearly 50 years,” Jenner says on the website. “I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.”

Described as “socially liberal and fiscally conservative,” the Republican candidate already has awesome campaign swag available online: Caitlyn for California Wine Glasses, Caitlyn for California Mugs, Caitlyn for California Unstructured Navy Hat, Caitlyn for California Beverage Coolers, bumper stickers, yard signs, and much more!
“This campaign will be powered by everyday Californians who deserve leadership that is accountable to them, not the special interests in Sacramento,” the website says.
“I have been a compassionate disrupter throughout my life,” Jenner says in a statement letter. “Californians want better and deserve better from their governor.”
Axios reported on Jenner’s campaign team:
She’s assembled a team of prominent GOP operatives including Tony Fabrizio, the top pollster on Donald Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, Ryan Erwin, founder of RedRock Strategies, and Tyler Deaton, president of Allegiance Strategies.
- She’s also hired Steven Cheung, a former Trump White House and campaign communications hand who worked on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s successful 2003 recall campaign.
- Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale, a personal friend of Jenner’s, has helped her assemble her team but doesn’t plan to take an official title on the campaign.
USA Today reported:
“In a June 2020 interview with People about the five-year anniversary of her transition, Jenner said she has ‘changed her political views.’ I’ve changed my thinking in a lot of ways,” she told the outlet. Now identifying as “economically conservative, socially progressive,” she believes “we need equality for all, regardless of who’s in the White House.”
Even USA Today noticed Gov. Gavin Newsom has dismissed the recall effort as a right wing, “white nationalist” movement:
“Newsom has been aggressively touring the state, touting its progress on vaccines. He has said he is taking the recall effort ‘very seriously’ but has branded the drive as a ‘partisan political power grab’ and the work of extremist conservatives and white supremacists like the Proud Boys.”
Californians from all walks of life, socio-economic status, culture, and political affiliation have signed the recall, which may be the real fear the governor’s team and media has. There are already three Republicans officially running to replace Gov. Newsom should he be recalled – Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Businessman John Cox and now Caitlyn Jenner.
However, never fear, the mainstream media arm of the Democrat Party is here to run interference for the governor. The Los Angeles Times published an article in January designed to destroy the character and public reputations of the RecallGavin2020 campaign and supporters, the Globe reported.
“A Times investigation found that recall campaign leaders, seeking to capitalize on the darkening public mood, allied with radical and extreme elements early on to help collect signatures,” the Los Angeles Times reported. “Those included groups promoting distrust of government, science and medicine; peddlers of QAnon doomsday conspiracies; ‘patriots’ readying for battle and one organization allied with the far-right extremist group, the Proud Boys.”
Caitlyn Jenner certainly doesn’t fit that image.
“We are very excited to see this happen,” Randy Economy, Senior Advisor and Media spokesman for RecallGavin2020 said. “There are a lot of great people coming forward to run for governor. The campaign to replace Gavin Newsom just entered a new phase.”
