According to reports, the Kardashian family may not support Caitlyn Jenner who plans to run for Governor in California.
According to TMZ, she informed her family of the decision prior to her announcement; However, she does not expect anyone from the Kardashian-Jenner clan to join her campaign or show any active support.
This is due to their political views which do not align with the former Olympic athlete and the “fallout from her divorce from Kris makes it all just too tricky”.
Caitlyn’s politics have been an issue with the family for years. Reportedly, she has taken positions on issues like gay marriage which she initially opposed but now supports. Sources informed TMZ that as for Kim, in particular, she genuinely likes Caitlyn and the two have a good relationship.
“Kim has been active in politics, working with Trump on prison reform, but has never personally aligned herself with conservative views. She never publicly endorsed even Kanye during his Presidential bid.”
Another issue that reportedly prevents the Kardashians from getting involved in Caitlyn`s campaign is that there are still hard feelings over her divorce from Kris, and the kids do not want to get in the middle.
“Kardashians are not going to publicly endorse anyone else, and that includes the current Governor, Gavin Newsom, who could be on the chopping block if the recall organisers get enough signatures,” sources close to the family told TMZ.
Caitlyn Jenner made her announcement on Friday morning, a few weeks after it was originally rumored that she was considering venturing into the political landscape.
Jenner wrote on Twitter about the news, “I’m in! California is worth fighting for.” She will reportedly run as a Republican in an effort to oust the current governor of California, Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, in a recall election that will likely take place later this year.
“California has been my home for nearly 50 years,” Jenner stated and added that “because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality.” Although she has a fondness for the state, she does have issues with the way that it has been run for the past decade.
