Caitlyn Jenner says she's filed paperwork to run for California governor

The reality TV star and former Olympian is a longtime Republican.


Caitlyn Jenner announced Friday on Twitter that she has filed paperwork to run for governor of California.

"I'm in! California is worth fighting for," Jenner said in a tweet. She says there will be a more formal announcement in the coming weeks.

Jenner, a reality TV star and former Olympian, is a longtime Republican.

California should officially know by late next week what political insiders already know — that a review of petitions by elections officials will open the door to a special election seeking the recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom.

Given bureaucratic procedures, it appears likely that the recall, only the second of its kind in the state's history, will be scheduled for some time around the Thanksgiving holiday.
