Is Caitlyn Jenner considering a U.S. Senate bid?

Written by  CBS News

Reality TV personality and former Olympic Athlete Caitlyn Jenner says she is considering a run for Senate in California and that she wants to help change the perception of the Republican party.

"Over the next six months or so, I got to find out where I can do a better job, can I do a better job from the outside kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, Or are you better off from the inside," Jenner told John Catsimatidis on the "Cats Roundtable" radio show.

She added, "We're in the process of determining that, and, yeah, I would look for, a senatorial run."

Caitlyn, formerly Bruce, famously came out as a transgender woman and has since been a vocal advocate for transgender rights and issues that the LGBTQ community faces.

"In the United States, the perception of the Democrats is they're pro-equality, pro-LGBT, and the perception of the Republicans is that they're all about rich white guys trying to make money," noted Jenner.
