Caitlyn Jenner considering a run for Senate

Just after musician Kid Rock tweeted out the possibility of Senate run in Michigan, Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner told a NY radio audience she is eyeing a Senate run in California. She told ABC's "The View" last week that she has been meeting with members of the Trump administration to talk about LGBTQ issues.

Jenner's "gotta find out where I can do a better job" over the next six months or so, she added. Since then, Caitlyn has had her own reality show, I Am Cait, about the trials of her transition, and has stood as a trans advocate while being an active Republican. "I like the political side of it", Jenner said. Can I do a better job from the outside ... or are you better off from the inside. That's my issue", she said, adding: "I'm obviously more on the T portion of the LGBT and I want people to understand that.

If Jenner runs, she will not be the only famous Republican on the ballot - soap actor and underwear model Antonio Sabato Jr.is 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. But, unsure of where her activism will take her, Jenner said she didn't know whether she could have a more significant impact from inside the government or outside of it.

Jenner's "six month" timeline suggests if she does choose to run, it would likely be in 2018. Or are you better off from the inside? That, I realize is in anyone's mind is different, but you asked me what I think. A Republican has not won a Senate seat in the state since 1988, and in 2016, a Republican did not even make it past California's open primary to the general election. "And if that's the case, if I find us on the insider, I would seriously look at it". I would hope in the next generation - because it'll take a generation for this to change - that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality. Jenner said on AM 970.
