On the one hand, we have Kid Rock running for U.S. Senate in Michigan, and on the other hand, we have a rather controversial figure reportedly aiming for office as well.
Brittany Soares reports that Olympic gold medalist and transgender celebrity Caitlyn (née Bruce) Jenner is the latest celebrity to reveal she has considered launching a run for Senate, The Hill reports.
“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” Jenner told radio host John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, responding to a rumor of her mulling a U.S. Senate bid in California. “The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me.”
Jenner added that she’s “gotta find out where I can do a better job” over the next six months or so.
“Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to, you know, talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that,” she said, explaining her thought process in determining her future in activism and politics. “And yeah, but I would look for a senatorial run.”
Sunday marked at least the second time in recent months that Jenner has teased a political future.
“At first I thought I would never run for office. Why? ‘Cause I got way too many secrets,” she told CNN in late April. “Now I have no more secrets. They’re all out. I’ve got nothing the media (could) go crazy over because they know everything.”
