Jenner Drops Political Bombshell… Caitlyn 2020?

President Donald Trump’s stunning victory in 2016 has led to many non-conventional candidates seriously considering a run for political office, inferring that if a non-political businessman like Trump could run and win, they could as well.

In addition to musician Kid Rock announcing recently that he plans to run for Senate, former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner) turned some heads this week by hinting at a possible Senate run, Breitbart reported.

The former athlete and reality TV star is “determining” if a Senate run would be feasible, Jenner told AM 970’s John Catsimatidis on Sunday.

“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me,” Jenner explained. “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?”

“I would look for a senatorial run,” Jenner added.

The Hill reported this isn’t the first time Jenner has hinted at a run for office. In April, Jenner mentioned a political run in an interview with CNN, and has been quite politically active in recent months.

You can listen to the full interview below. The relevant comments being at the 6:00 mark.

It is unclear what year Jenner would run for office — if a decision is even made. There are Senate races in both 2018 and 2020, so it is possible Jenner could run in either of those races.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the next Senate race in California is in 2018 against Senator Diane Feinstein, who hasn’t yet stated if she will run for reelection.

It is also unclear for which party Jenner would run. Although a self-identified Republican, Jenner obviously leans left on social issues like transgender bathrooms.

Of course all of this simply could be a bid by Jenner to grab some more attention after the television show “I am Caitlyn” turned into a ratings nightmare and was canceled.

Within the next few months we will undoubtedly start to see more people toss their hat into the ring for 2018. All we can do is wait and see if Jenner is one of those people.
