Caitlyn Jenner says she may consider running for US Senate

Caitlyn Jenner says she may consider running for US 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.

"Yeah, I would look for a senatorial run", Jenner told Catsimatidis.

"Can I do a better job from the outside?"

Ever since her transition, the "I Am Cait" star has been anticipated by many of her fans to take the leap into politics to help better represent the LGBTQ community. "Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to, you know, talk to anybody?" If she did run and win, though, Jenner would become the first openly transgender senator.

In April she hosted an event titled Imagining Men & Women: Caitlyn Jenner On Transgender Identity And Courage, where she spoke about her political leanings.

This comes only a few days after rumors of a Kid Rock Senate run. The next opportunity to run for Senate will be in 2018, when Democrat Dianne Feinstein is up for re-election.

Macron reiterates France's responsibility in WW2 mass round-up of Jews
At a ceremony attended by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr Macron also pledged to fight continued anti-Semitism. Macron rolled out the red carpet for Trump on Friday when he was guest of honour for France's Bastille Day festivities.

Jenner, a longtime Republican, has supported President Donald Trump but criticised him earlier this year after he chose to roll back Obama-era protections for transgender students, The Hill reported.

The Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist said that she's now looking into where she can do a "better job" of promoting LGBT rights.

"I hope to change the perception of the Republican Party", she said, "and make it the party of equality".

"After meeting with then-President-elect Trump in December, West tweeted, "#2024", causing fans to speculate whether he's delaying a run for president and whether he is serious about running at all. "Right now, I think they're obviously unstoppable because we have the Senate, we have Congress, we've got the executive branch, we've got the governors. we've just got to change people's perception".

"I believe in little things like the Constitution".
