Caitlyn Jenner mulling running for Senate to represent California

She was able to keep up with the Kardashians for years, but can Caitlyn Jenner take care of business with the senators?

Jenner, a lifelong Republican, told New York's AM 970 on Sunday she is considering running for Senate, out of California. "I like the political side," she said. "I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside, kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being able to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that."

A transgender activist, Jenner said she is going to meet with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley to discuss international LGBTQ issues, and told AM 970 she hopes to "change the perception of the Republican Party and make it the party of equality." California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, has not announced if she will run again in 2018, and Jenner said she will make her decision sometime within the next six months. If she does decide to throw her hat in the ring, she doesn't have to look far for a campaign momager.
