Current Governor Gavin Newsom is facing a possible recall election and if he loses his position, the state will need to find a new leader.
One of the candidates is former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, who has been a controversial figure for years.
But she might’ve just surprised millions of Republican voters.
Gov. Newsom is definitely a Democrat through and through, and some might’ve assumed that Jenner would also run on the Democrat ticket.
But in fact, she’s not.
She’s running as a GOP candidate and Jenner isn’t waffling at all — she appears to be adopting most of the right-wing ideals.
Jenner even wants to embrace slogans and policy suggestions put forth by Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan.
And that’s bound to raise eyebrows on both sides of the aisle:
Caitlyn Jenner, in a new video for her California gubernatorial campaign, is coming out as a clear conservative, condemning the constant COVID-19 lockdowns, elite liberal politicians, and big government.
Her first video ad for government will definitely make some waves:
Jenner even called for the full reopening of businesses, schools and churches, which really isn’t part of the Democrat message.
She even went a step further and said it was “time to make California great again.”
The American dream grew up here. Yet career politicians and their policies have destroyed that dream.
It’s been locked away, closed, shuttered, left in the dark, burned down. The government is now involved in every part of our lives.
They’ve taken our money, our jobs, and our freedom. California needs a disruptor — a compassionate disruptor,” the former Olympic star said.
Jenner obviously wants to take down Newsom, and wants to do it with startlingly hardcore right-wing ideas.
She’s been a bit of a left-wing pariah for years, especially after supporting former POTUS Donald Trump. And she reminded people of her support in the ad.
This is the sort of platform that might not fly in the historically far-left state of California.
And it’s also unlikely that Jenner can beat Newsom, but it’s certainly not impossible. And Newsom’s reputation continues to flail.
Republicans and Conservatives alike could get behind Jenner’s strong message:
I want to carry the torch for the parents who had to balance work and their child’s education, for business owners who were forced to shut down, for pastors who were not able to be with their congregation…
At the same time, she doesn’t want to alienate all the liberals, and will continue to stand for certain social issues.
The question is, can she still get a few Democrat votes in addition to lots of Republican nods?
- Caitlyn Jenner released her first video ad for her California Governor campaign.
- In it, she channels Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan, and wants to “make California great again.”
- She also highlighted many right-wing ideals, and stood against lockdowns, big government, and liberal elites.
