Caitlyn Jenner has filed paperwork to run for governor in California and officially announced her bid on Friday, Axios first reported.
The former Olympian and reality-TV star is a longtime Republican vying to unseat the Democratic incumbent, Gavin Newsom, who was elected in 2018 and is facing a recall election this year.

"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," the homepage of Jenner's campaign website says.
"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."
Previous reports said Jenner was considering a bid for governor and had consulted with Brad Parscale, the former Trump campaign manager, about a campaign.
Axios reported that while Parscale isn't formally involved in Jenner's gubernatorial bid, her campaign team includes other Trump campaign and administration alumni such as Tony Fabrizio, the Trump campaign's former pollster, and Stephen Cheung, a former White House communications aide.
A Jenner campaign advisor told Axios they believed Jenner could pose a real threat to Newsom based on her name recognition from years of appearing on the popular show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and her socially liberal views. Jenner, who came out as transgender in 2015, would be the first trans governor elected in the United States.
She described herself as a "compassionate disrupter" in her statement announcing her campaign, arguing that she is a "proven winner and the only outsider who can put an end to Gavin Newsom's disastrous time as governor."
