GOP Celeb Considering Challenging California Governor

Former Olympian turned reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner is considering a bid to take on embattled California Governor Gavin Newsom.

According to a report from Axios, Jenner, who would run as a Republican, is working with a former Trump operative while going through the decision-making process:

Jenner is being assisted in her consideration by Caroline Wren, a longtime GOP fundraiser. Wren initially met Jenner through her work with the American Unity Fund, a GOP nonprofit focused on LGBT issues.

Wren previously worked at Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for President Trump’s 2020 campaign, and also helped organize the rally he addressed immediately before the U.S. Capitol assault on Jan. 6.

Jenner who supported Trump’s campaign in 2016 but later backtracked calling it a “mistake” would be challenging Newsom who has recently found himself in another challenge.

Newsom is likely to face a recall election in 2021 which would make him the fourth governor in history to face such a challenge.

Last month the recall effort submitted “more than enough names” to force a recall. California state law requires recall efforts to submit signatures of at least 12% of the votes cast in the last gubernatorial election which is over 1.4 million registered voters.

One of the biggest proponents of the recall effort is former San Diego Mayor Kevin Falconer who is also a likely challenger to Newsom in 2022.

Newsom’s chances to win reelection don’t look promising, but his biggest challenge may come from his own party.

Current betting odds show that Billionaire venture capitalist Chamath Palihapitiya – who also owns the NBA’s Golden State Warriors – is currently the favorite to win with an implied chance of 44 percent according to Betfair’s pricing.

Palihapitiya would likely run as a Democrat should he enter the fray.

I know, I know, he’s a boy. I get that, but I’m sure he probably would do a better job than the corrupt snow flake currently in office.

I am from California and I hope not. She is definitely not a politician.

Is California a lost cause? Or are residents finally sick of the Socialism destroying their state? If a Repub wins in the Recall, could it be the start of a red wave for 2022? What happens if, after 7 states complete their “forensic audits” of the 2020 election, it turns out that TRUMP scoots over 270 electoral votes? Does Biden become the ultimate “cancelled” politician? If the audits include down ballot, what happens if in the end, GOP actually ends up in the majority in both the House AND Senate?

That’s a great scenario. But, you don’t know California politics. I believe since Ronald Reagan it’s been a complete lost cause. LA and San Francisco are very liberal populated parts of the state. And….. the central valley, more conservative, not all get out and vote.
It’s a vicious circle. Trust me, I know.

We’re doomed because the people we are electing do not worship God or act in honesty, transparency, and truthfulness. They do whats right in their own eyes without any conscience.

I wish Bruce well. I hope he can knock off Pelosi’s lackey. When stains are ingrained in the carpeting they are difficult to remove.

And you thought Joe Biden was the ultimate stealth candidate, just look at what Caitlyn is hiding! But seriously, what can the left say except Gavin Newsom promises to get a sex change if re-elected, its the only way to top (no pun intended) soon-to-be Governor Jenner. Sure they will try to smear him/her/shim, but then we can expose their BS concern over trans rights.

Personally I don’t care if CA ever figures it out, they are a great incubator of bad ideas that we can all hopefully learn from without actually dying from their fallout. I do like exposing hypocrisy and this seems like it could be one of those times. Newsom will get re-elected anyway, if you think the Dems are going to all that trouble to cheat in a Presidential election only to lose CA you are crazy.

no up or down vote, but you are so correct, HOW CRAZY can this CRAP get, maybe Mr Donald Trump can move to California and run against this FRAUD CORRUPT CRIMINAL call newsome. And there will be a FRAUDULENT recall election, and so as the MANDALORIAN says,” THIS IS THE BE THE WAY”.

Does this surprise anyone? Not me. I’ve been watching Cali slide towards a deep dark abyss for sometime now. Jenner will just push it on over!

Sorry Jenner. But having you, a transgender, as California’s Governor is somewhat like pouring acid in a wound. California doesn’t need more problems. It has so many now that people have lost count…and moved out of that state.

Between Pelosi and Jenner, I do believe the “exodus” would be enormous, more than any state has ever experienced. With Jenner in office, CHAOS AND MAYHEM WOULD ENSUE destroying what little California had left that was enjoyable!

Yes the Democrats are moving to other states. When we finish draining the California swamp the Republicans will take over again. They won a lot of seats this time.

We need people who have Godly values and uphold God’s commandments who strive for honesty, goodness, and lawfulness. No wonder the whole world is in a mess because of sin, immorality, corruption, and wrongdoing. Romans 2:5 ” But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasures up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who will render to every man according to their deeds.”

That thing needs to stay in the closet and isn’t stable enough for leadership mentally.
It’s too vulnerable for LGBTQ militants and other Leftist to guilt and shame it into submission.
