Is there room in D.C. for Caitlyn Jenner

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.

When asked about the "rumor" of a Senate run, she said, "I have considered it. I like the political side of it", she said. "Over the next six months or so, I got to find out where I can do a better job".

Caitlyn, who won an Olympic gold medal for the USA at the Games in 1976, explained that she has already worked with the American Unity Fund in a bid to ensure lawmakers understand LGBT issues.

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

Caitlyn Jenner's next major personal project could be a run for the United States Senate.

"Yes, I would have to look, over the next year or two, look and see, can I do a better job on the outside or am I in a position now that I can do a better job for my community on the inside", Jenner told Lemon. "That's kind of my issue".

Caitlyn Jenner attends her book signing of "The Secrets of My Life" at Barnes & Noble Union Square on April 26, 2017 in New York City.

'Can I do a better job on the outside?

If Jenner runs, she will not be the only famous Republican on the ballot - soap actor and underwear model Antonio Sabato 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. "If not, if by that time he's lowered taxes, helped the economy, he's created jobs, he's done all these things that are good for the country, then you can re-elect him".

Jenner co-hosted popular daytime talk show, The View, and said she is 'disappointed in a few ways' by Donald Trump. She'd also like to convince people that the Republican party isn't just " all about rich white guys trying to make money". Jenner said on AM 970. 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.
