The Kardashians are apparently not going to support Caitlyn Jenner in her race for governor of California.
On Saturday April 24, sources close to the Jenners and the Kardashians told TMZ
Caitlyn reportedly told her family about her race before announcing her campaign. But Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris would not support her during the election campaign.
According to the source, there are still unresolved tensions regarding Kris and Caitlyn’s divorce although Kim apparently has a good relationship with Caitlyn. Children don’t want to “get in the middle”. The insider claimed the Kardashians have no plans to endorse a gubernatorial candidate.
Caitlyn has extremely different political views from her family. The Kardashians had previously supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race, while Caitlyn supported Republican Donald Trump. Two years later, she disowned her support for Donald but still remains a Republican to this day.
According to Axios, Caroline Wren, who worked for former President Donald Trump’s fundraising campaign, Trump Victory, will work for Jenner in her race. Caroline was one of the organizers of the Trump rally that sparked the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. The women first met through the GOP nonprofit American Unity Fund, which focuses on LGBTQ + rights.
Caitlyn could run in the potential recall election against Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. A recall election takes place in certain situations where voters can remove an elected official before the end of his term through an election. Newsom will most likely be subject to a recall election after its mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic under an emergency order.
