Caitlyn Jenner has hired a film crew to document her candidacy for governor of California.
The 71-year-old former Olympian and reality star is running for political office and has reportedly hired a documentary crew to document her trip.
According to a report released by Politico on Friday (7/16/21), Caitlyn plans to subsequently sell the footage for a documentary or series, although no project is in progress at the time of writing.
A senior campaign advisor told the outlet, “We’re documenting history.”
Caitlyn announced her plan to run for governor in April when she issued a lengthy statement on her political campaign.
She said, “California has been my home for almost 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of where they come from or where they live, can make their dreams come true. But in the past decade we’ve seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that puts politics above progress and special interests above people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision.
“I’ve been a compassionate troublemaker all my life, from representing the United States to winning a gold medal in the Olympics to promoting the equality movement.”
However, the I Am Cait star’s sons – Burt, 42, who Caitlyn has with Chrystie Jenner, and her two sons to Linda Thompson, Brandon, 39, and Brody, 37 – are not happy with their potential career move.
Insiders claimed that Burt, Brandon and Brody “didn’t feel they qualified for the position” and “were upset that she never considered the feelings of the family” before announcing their decision to run.
It has also been reported that Caitlyn’s ex-wife Kris Jenner and daughters – Kendall, 25, and Kylie, 23 – as well as the rest of the Kardashian family will not support the star’s political campaign.
But actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was governor of California from 2003 to 2011, said it “doesn’t matter” who the governor is as long as they are “qualified” for the job.
He explained, “The most important thing in all of this is that it doesn’t matter if it’s Caitlyn or someone else. Do you have a clear vision of where you want to go? What changes would you like to make and why are you qualified to become governor?
“You have to convince people of that.”
