According to report reaching oyogist.com, Caitlyn Jenner announced Friday that she has filed the initial paperwork to become a candidate for California governor.

The 71-year-old longtime Republican will be joining the field of candidates hoping to replace Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in a likely recall election later this year.

“Californians want better and deserve better from their governor,” Jenner said in a press release announcing her bid for governor.

Jenner’s run comes nearly two decades after the ascendancy of Arnold Schwarzenegger, another Republican who used his Hollywood fame as a springboard to the state’s highest office in a 2003 recall election.

If the recall qualifies for the ballot, as expected, voters would be asked two questions: first, whether Newsom should be removed from office. The second would be a list of replacement candidates to choose from, if more than 50 per cent of voters support removing Newsom from office.

The effort has been largely fuelled by criticism of Newsom’s handling of the pandemic. Republicans who have announced their intention to run include former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, former U.S. Rep. Doug Ose and businessman John Cox, who lost to Newsom in the 2018 governor’s race.
