Caitlyn Jenner Says She Has "Considered" a Senate Run

Caitlyn Jenner reportedly mulling California Senate run

"I have considered it", Jenner said of a run for political office; "I like the political side of it".

Speaking to John Catsimatidis on the radio on Sunday, Pink News reported Jenner stating she was investigating whether she could do more good as an elected official or work to enact change from the outside.

Jenner said she has worked with the American Unity Fund to get GOP lawmakers to better understand LGBT issues. "Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that", she said.

"The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me", she added.

Jenner has been in the spotlight for decades - first as Bruce, an Olympic athlete and the long-suffering husband and father in the Kardashian reality television empire, and then as the activist who transitioned to Caitlyn in 2015, becoming one of the most famous transgender voices in the world.

In June, USA TODAY reported on Jenner's political views and her on-again, off-again relationship with Trump.

IAF keeps four Mi-17s ready for rescue operations in Odisha
Kalahandi District Collector Anjan Kumar Manik said one person from Thuamul Rampur block has died. Besides rail track in between Therubali and Singapur stations is washed away by the flood water.

Since coming out as transgender, Jenner has spoken about a number of issues including her own struggles with mental health.

On Wednesday, Grammy nominated music sensation Kid Rock formally announced his run to represent MI in the United States Senate.

"Can I do a better job on the outside?" Working the perimeter of the political scene? Or, are you better from the inside? Incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D), who has held the seat since 1992, is very popular in California, but it's not clear whether Feinstein, who is 84 years old and the oldest member of the Senate, will run for reelection in 2018. So, it seems like Republican reality stars think they can take a shot at politics and succeed! She'd also like to convince people that the Republican party isn't just " all about rich white guys trying to make money".

Jenner previously explained that although the Democrats would be undoubtedly better at championing LGBT rights, she was a supporter of the Republican party and feels she should offer her help to them.

"I would hope in the next generation. that we can change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality". "I believe in limited government", Jenner told Catsimatidis.
