California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner on Wednesday will do her first major TV since filing last month to runner for California governer.
Jenner, a gold medal Olympian, reality TV star, and transgender advocate, will be interviewed by Fox News TV host Sean Hannity on his evening show, the network confirmed Tuesday.
The event is planned to be a live interview in Malibu, California, in front of a live audience. The event is not open to the public or the media, and the audience will not be able to ask questions of Jenner, according to Politico.
One day ahead of the interview, Jenner released a video on her campaign website “Caitlyn fo California” arguing against so-called career politicians whose politics, she argues, have “destroyed” the great American and California dreams.
“California was once the envy of the world,” Jenner said in her video. “The American Dream grew up here. Yet, career politicians and their policies have destroyed that dream. It’s been locked away, closed, shuttered, left in the dark, burned down.”
Jenner, a registered Republican, makes her bid amid a recall petition against Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom that could happen as soon as November. The petition asks residents whether they want Newsom recalled and who they want to replace him. The petition drive was largely driven by what Newsom critics say was his inadequate handling of the coronavirus.
“The government is now involved in every part of our lives,” Jenner also says in the video. They’ve taken our money, our jobs, and our freedom. California needs a disruptor – a thoughtful disruptor,” Jenner said in her video.
This past weekend, Jenner, a transgender person, said she does not support males who identifying as females competing in women’s sports, saying TMZ such a situation is “unfair” to female athletes.
