[Ed. – Is it correct to refer to Caitlyn Jenner as an Olympic gold medalist, as this author does in the opening sentence? In 2014, a serial killer pleaded not guilty to multiple murder charges on the grounds that the brutal acts were her former self. If that’s the standard theory of how transgenderism works, then it was not Caitlyn but Bruce Jenner who won those medals.]
Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner is the latest celebrity to reveal she has considered lanching a run for Senate, telling radio host John Catsimatidis she is in the process of determining her future in activism and politics.
“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” Jenner, who is a Republican, told Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York.
“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that,” she said.
“Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run,” she continued.
Jenner told CNN’s Don Lemon in April she would “seriously look at a run for office.”
Jenner has been a supporter of President Trump, but hit Trump earlier this year over his decision to roll back Obama-era transgender protections for students.
