Gavin Newsom, the embattled governor of California, faces a serious challenge in both the recall election, as well as the 2022 election should the recall election result in victory for him.
Caitlyn Jenner, a famous Republican, anticipates running in the 2022 California gubernatorial race should Newsom manage to survive the impending recall election against him.
In an appearance on Fox News at the Dallas CPAC, Jenner proclaimed, “that is the plan,” adding that “once this is over with,” the Jenner team will analyze what they have done with regards to the recall election while evaluating all relevant factors.
Jenner also added, “to be honest with you, I don’t plan on losing this election,” noting that the Jenner team is intent on “[taking Newsom] out now.”

Earlier this year, during April, Jenner filed formal paperwork for launching a gubernatorial bid in the upcoming recall election, identifying as a Republican. This action was taken after a Jenner representative attempted to eliminate rumors regarding Jenner’s potential gubernatorial bid.
In February, Sophia Hutchins, Jenner’s manager, insisted that Jenner is currently not running for governor, nor has Jenner even considered a gubernatorial bid. Hutchins added that Jenner is quite content with current projects, which include the promotion of LGBT rights and spending quality time with her family, which includes 10 children and 18 grandchildren.
However, Jenner soon launched a campaign, which labeled the present governor as “King Newsom” due to his harsh, yet hypocritical, polices regarding the COVID pandemic.
Jenner has also joined alongside many Republicans that do not acknowledge that Donald J. Trump truly lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden. Jenner also added in a different campaign video that California was formally “envy of the world,” at least prior to its destruction by various ultra-liberal politicians. This particular messaging tactic was garnered directly from Trump, who frequently noted that America’s decline could be attributed to Democrat policies.
Per Jenner, California used to be envied by the world since the state “had what everyone else wanted,” including the realization of the American dream. However, “career politicians and their policies have destroyed that dream,” Jenner continued in a campaign video, particularly since the state has been “burned down,” “left in the dark,” “shuttered,” “closed,” and “locked away.”
California, in other words, has taken “our jobs,” “our money,” and “our freedom,” especially since the state government is now invasively involved in virtually each part of Californians’ lives. As a result, the state is in great need of “a compassionate disruptor,” Jenner continued.
Aside from Jenner, other GOP candidates are in the running for ending Newsom’s tenure as the governor of California. These candidates include GOP state Rep. Kevin Kiley, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, and a previous gubernatorial candidate, John Cox.
