Caitlyn Jenner has launched a bid to become California’s next governor amid an effort to recall Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, stating, “I’m in!”
The former Olympic decathlete, who changed his name to Caitlyn after publicly announcing he identified as a transgender woman in 2015, broke the news on Friday morning in a statement posted on social media.
In that statement, Jenner said paperwork to take on Newsom had been filed and that more information about a gubernatorial bid would follow in the coming weeks.
