Caitlyn Jenner shuts down rumours she’s running for government after speculation
Caitlyn Jenner has made it clear she has no ambitions for political power, assuring fans her family and LGBTQ activism are her main priorities.
A statement issued by the 71-year-old's manager stamped out any speculation, insisting Caitlyn never had any inclination to run for Governor.
The announcement comes after fans speculated over whether Caitlyn would run for the Governor of California position, as the state's current Governor, Gavin Newsom, is likely to undergo a recall election.
California has been led by a celebrity Governor in the past – actor Arnold Schwarzenegger held the position between 2003 and 2011.
However, despite the speculation from fans, Caitlyn has no drive to get involved in politics, her manager has confirmed.
In a statement shared with People, Sophia Hutchins said: "Caitlyn is not running for governor, has never considered running for governor and is very happy doing the work that she is doing to promote LGBT rights and spending time with her 18 grandchildren and 10 children."
Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Caitlyn has been vocal about her political views in the past, previously aligning herself with the Republican Party.
In the 2016 Presidential election in the US, the Olympian voted for President Donald Trump, sharing her decision with fans.
However, in June of last year, she told People she had completely changed her way of thinking when it comes to politics.
Caitlyn added that "we need equality for all, regardless of who's in the White House".
The former I'm A Celeb star has revealed she now identifies as "economically conservative, socially progressive" when it comes to her political views.
More recently, last October, Caitlyn said her fans regularly implore her to get involved in politics, but she feels she can make a greater change as an activist.
She told news site OZY: "I even had people talking to me about running for the Senate or Congress and all these people that said, ‘You've got to come up and do this.'
"And I thought, ‘You know what? I think I can do a better job being on the outside, trying to influence other people than just being one vote in Congress or in the Senate or whatever it may be.'"
She added: "Yeah. It's a tough environment, and you see it all the time. I don't need that in my life."
