Caitlyn Jenner (71) will not be governor of California. The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star ran for the position, but current Democratic governor Gavin Newsom (53) won, several US media reported.
Caitlyn, best known as a former athlete and parent of reality stars Kylie and Kendall Jenner, received 1.1 percent of the vote. More than two-thirds of voters believe that Gavin should stay on as governor, preliminary results show. The final result will be announced on October 22.
In April, Caitlyn announced her candidacy. Since then, the Republican has been discredited several times by statements. For example, the 71-year-old says he is in front of a border wall between the US and Mexico, a showpiece of former President Donald Trump. She also stated that as far as she is concerned, trans girls should not participate in the sports competitions for women in schools. The reality star announced in 2015 that she is transgender. Because of her statements about trans girls, she could count on a lot of criticism from the LGBTI community.
Caitlyn isn’t the first well-known American to run for California governor. Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger came to power in 2003. He then took over from Democratic Senator Gray Davis.
