Caitlyn Jenner tells Hannity she’s ready to replace Newsom as California governor
California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner sat down with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday regarding her bid to unseat Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in the state’s upcoming recall election.
Jenner said it was “not an easy decision” to enter the race but she’s always been a “fighter” and will take that spirit into her campaign.
“I want to take that same fight, that same spirit, go to Sacramento, surround myself with some of the smartest people out there,” Jenner explained. “I am an outsider. I understand that … because now I’m in a race for solutions. I need to find solutions to be able to turn this state around. I absolutely love this state. I’m a fighter. Always have been.”
Jenner called Newsom for “hypocrisy” on his French Laundry restaurant visit – and for his failed policies.
“He’s been so bad on every issue,” Jenner said. “He’s been bad on taxes … he’s been horrible for business, obviously. Companies are leaving left and right. 18,000 companies have left California. My friends are leaving California!”
She added, “I don’t want to leave. Either I stay and fight or I get out of here.”
