Caitlyn Jenner has been known for conservative views for quite awhile and yet is the type of conservative that many conservatives are offended to hear described as a conservative.

It couldn't be transphobia could it? 8)

Trump clearly helped the Republicans catch up to the Democrats on fragmentation.

I hope she gets in. It's about time that America has a transgender leader.

Usain Bolt is a sprinter, not a long-distance runner.

He is also not American, but Jamaican.

But wait a minute my liberal friends, Why are we not praising the RNC for its diversity and inclusiveness in running a Trans Woman for governor?

But they haven't yet. She's just considering it. Do you think conservatives will rally around her if she runs? If the California Republicans do end up making her their candidate it would be groundbreaking and worthy of praise, it still wouldn't make her an agreeable candidate to people who don't support far-right views.

Jenner supported Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican primary, she's not likely to be appealing to the same people who think it's good that generically a transgender person is able to run. At the end of the day they're going to vote for the person they agree with, not a far-right candidate whom they believe is entitled to run but also find disagreeable.

I hope Caitlyn IS the Republican candidate. That would assure a Democratic victory.

I used to like him when he was Bruce. He used to do a neat Wheaties commercial.

Jenner certainly has the ego for it.

If Caitlyn Jenner ever is taken seriously, I would start to thing that the US is really going down the tubes.

I'm actually worried that a guy like Trump was taken seriously.

If Caitlyn Jenner really cared about the LGBTQ+ community, then she should not have voted for Trump.

Something tells me she'll struggle to win votes from the anti-trans GOP voters who think she's just a man who wants access to women's restrooms for perverted reasons.
