From Julie Makinen/Palm Springs Desert Sun:
Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympic athlete-turned-transgender activist and reality TV star, has declared her intention to run for California governor in the looming recall race to unseat incumbent Democrat Gavin Newsom.
In a website launched Friday, Jenner says: "I'm In! California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality. But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision."
The website does not identify her as being affiliated with any political party.
She added: "This campaign will be powered by everyday Californians who deserve leadership that is accountable to them, not the special interests in Sacramento."
