Reality television star Caitlyn Jenner announced plans Friday to run for governor of California. "I’m in! California is worth fighting for," Jenner tweeted. Jenner, a Republican, has filed paperwork to seek the governorship and has hired several well-known Republican operatives to guide her burgeoning campaign. She's hoping to unseat Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, who faces an all-but-certain recall election later this year. Jenner, the Olympic gold medal winning decathlete turned transgender rights activist and nationally known TV personality, had been mulling a bid. Word of the decision was first reported by Axios and confirmed by Fox News.
