DALLAS – Republican California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner told Fox News on Saturday that she plans to run for governor in 2022 if Republicans are not successful in recalling Gov. Gavin Newsom this September
Jenner made the comments at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and maintained that her plan is to come out victorious in the recall.
“Yes. As of right now we are going – that is the plan,” Jenner said when asked about a 2022 run.
“Once this is over with we are going to kind of evaluate everything that we’ve done over this recall election. But to be honest with you I don’t plan on losing this election,” Jenner, the decorated Olympian decathlete, added. “We’re going to take him out now. Our best opportunity to take out Gavin Newsom is right now.”
Jenner is in a race that involves multiple other high-profile California Republicans, including former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and businessman John Cox. The California recall process includes two questions – one about whether the sitting governor should be recalled and another about who should replace him, which is only relevant if the governor is actually recalled.
