(INSIDE CALIFORNIA POLITICS) — Among the candidates hoping to take Gov. Gavin Newsom’s job in the recall election this September is Caitlyn Jenner.
The former Olympic athlete and self-described political outsider has never held office, but insist she’s the right person for the job.
She sat down with Inside California Politics’ Frank Buckley this week for a wide-ranging interview.
The 71-year-old Jenner — who won the men’s Olympic decathlon in 1976 and decades later became a reality TV star and came out as a transgender woman — announced her candidacy back in June in a written statement on Twitter.
“The final decision was two months ago, three months ago. I’m watching TV. I’m looking at bad policies. Horrible outcomes, coming across these kids in cages. It just shows you what bad policies can do,” Jenner said, describing when she decided to run for governor.
