She continued, asking, 'Can I do a better job from the outside?
In the interview, Caitlyn Jenner indicated that she's given herself a timeline spanning half a year to determine whether she will be able to do "a better job" on the political inside or from "working the perimeter of the political scene". "Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run".
She had previously told CNN's Don Lemon that she was "seriously" considering a run for office.
If Jenner is successful, she is unlikely to be welcomed by everyone in the party, as her comments come two days after a GOP Congressman spoke out against the financial provision of gender reassignment for USA troops, comparing transgender troops to castrated slaves. Jenner, a Republican, talked about limited government, a speech to College Republicans, and what a more inclusive LGBT agenda would mean for the future of the party. On Sunday, she said she's meeting with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "I sometimes get disappointed with Trump, especially when he went up against [Obama's transgender directive.]".
"I totally agree with you", Jenner replied.
Meanwhile, the Detroit singer Kid Rock has also announced he will run for Michigan's 2018 U.S. Senate seat.
The news comes less than a week after musician Kid Rock issued a statement saying he may run for the senate in MI.
After 46 percent of America's electorate decided a reality show television host was qualified to run the most powerful country on the planet, it's hard to argue other celebrities shouldn't get involved in politics.
