Caitlyn Jenner is considering a run for Calif. governor, strategists from both sides weigh in

The Donlon Report

(The Donlon Report) — There could be another celebrity in the California governor’s mansion.

Former reality star and Olympian Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly considering a run for California governor. If Jenner does officially launch a campaign, she would be challenging the current Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom who is facing a likely recall election later this year.

The former Olympian came out as a transgender woman in 2015, garnering a great deal of support from LGBTQ activists and progressive groups along the way. But she lost some of her support when she later came out as a fan of then-President Donald Trump. Notably, Jenner is not the first celebrity to launch a bid for governor of the state. Former actor Arnold Schwarzenegger served as governor from 2003 to 2011.

But what would happen if she did launch a campaign for governor of the golden state? Two strategists, Democrat Laura Fink and Republican Inez Stepman give their answers only on the Donlon Report.

Watch Laura Fink and Inez Stepman on The Donlon Report in the player above.
