Senator Jenner? It could be more of a possibility than you think

Can I do a better job from the outside?

The 67-year-old reality TV star, who was known as Bruce Jenner prior to undergoing gender reassignment surgery, has revealed she is now weighing up the possibility of moving into politics, where she would represent the state of California.

Incumbent Democratic California senator Dianne Feinstein is the nation's oldest senator, celebrating her 84th birthday next week, but has given no suggestions she is planning on retiring and has not addressed speculation about whether she will run for a full fifth term in 2018, the Ventura County Star reported. "If there's one thing - I work very closely with the American Unity Fund - that their sole goal, their mission statement is to get the Republican party to do a better job with all LGBT issues", she commented. Working the perimeter of the political scene?

"Yes, I would have to look, over the next year or two, look and see, can I do a better job on the outside or am I in a position now that I can do a better job for my community on the inside", Jenner told Lemon.

Jenner, a Republican, went on to say that, "The perception of the Republican Party is that they're all about rich white guys trying to make money".


In the interview, she said she had plans to meet with Nikki Haley, the United States' ambassador to the United Nations, to discuss the global ramifications for being involved with the LGBTQ community. And we are in the process of determining that.

Caitlyn Jenner's next big event: Politics?

"I would look for a senatorial run", she added. Since then, Caitlyn has had her own reality show, I Am Cait, about the trials of her transition, and has stood as a trans advocate while being an active Republican.

However, since Trump has taken office, Caitlyn Jenner has publicly admitted to being disappointed in the POTUS, reports Daily Mail.

Given her conversion to a woman and the support she got from the LGBTQ-community, her entry into politics was highly anticipated to better the laws for the community. In addition to Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, celebs such as Al Franken, Sonny Bono, and even Jerry Springer have all successfully pursued their political careers after being high-profile entertainers.
