Only a few episodes remain of the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But will the Kardashians ever really go away?

Last week, Caitlyn Jenner, former spouse of Kardashian "momager" Kris Jenner and the most famous transgender person in the world, announced her decision to run as a Republican candidate in California's special recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom this November. In her announcement on Twitter, Jenner described herself as a "compassionate disrupter" and "proven winner," a nod to her Olympic gold medal in the 1976 decathlon event. "This will be a campaign of solutions," she promised, "providing a roadmap back to prosperity to turn this state around and finally clean up the damage Newsom has done to this state."
