Caitlin Jenner has revealed how it was easier to come out as transgender to her family than it was for her to declare that she is a Republican.
Jenner, 71, told Elex Michaelson, host of FOX 11’s ‘The Issue Is’ that it was harder to tell her famous family she was running as a Republican candidate for Governor of California than it was to disclose her gender dysphoria.
Michaelson asked Jenner if her former stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, who advised former president Donald Trump on criminal justice reform, was going to be an adviser to her on the important issue.
Jenner laughed and said ‘One thing, and I’ve talked to all my family about running for governor and to be honest with you, it was easier to come out as trans than as a Republican candidate for governor, it was a lot tougher to sell.’

Jenner, famed for being an Olympic gold decathlete runner called Bruce before transitioning, announced her candidacy for the election via Twitter in April.
In a statement, Jenner said she was focused on issues such as boosting the economy, tax breaks and a position against the state’s left-leaning policies, touting herself as ‘the only potential candidate ‘who can put an end to Gavin Newsom’s disastrous time as governor.’
Jenners’ most high profile offspring – daughters Kendall and Kylie – have yet to comment on her run for governor, although her three sons are said to be ’embarrassed,’ and consider her unqualified for the role.
The recall movement against the current Democratic Governor has mostly centered around Newsom’s handling of the pandemic.
Critics have panned his restrictive lockdown measures on schools and businesses during the pandemic.
They claim California did no better with COVID cases, hospitalization and deaths than Republican states including Texas and California which had far less restrictive measures.
Newsom was also publicly slammed after he was seen dining at the luxurious French Laundry restaurant in November 2020, where he and a party of 10 or more people were seen without face masks and none were practicing social distancing.
At the time, the state had a ban on indoor dining, with the governor himself urging Californians to stay at home.
The poll on whether to recall Newsom is set to take place sometime this year after the required number of signatures were collected.
Voters will be asked whether they want to recall Newsom. If a majority say yes, he’ll be ousted from office. They’ll also be asked to choose a replacement governor on the same ballot, with the candidate who gets the most votes winning.

If a Republican wins, it will be the first time they have held the state since 2003, when Arnold Schwarzenegger won.
Despite the lack of enthusiasm from family members Jenner told Michaelson if she won she believes Kardashian would not hesitate to advise her and praised her work.
‘I think Kimberly has done an amazing job with criminal justice reform,’ Jenner said. ‘I think she’s spot on. I have not asked her to be involved in my campaign but I guarantee you, as time goes on and I become governor I’m sure she’ll have my ear’
Jenner faces competition within the Republican party, including San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, businessman John Cox and former Rep. Doug Ose, all three of whom polled better than Jenner in a recent survey of California voters from UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies and the Los Angeles Times.
Faulconer and Cox got 22 percent of those polled, Ose got 14 percent and Jenner got six percent.
