Caitlyn Jenner previously made the news, but not all of it is for reasons she would like. Jenner previously revealed that she will be running for Governor of California, which was met with a mixed response from many.
It seems Jenner’s political journey has come to a humiliating end. On Tuesday, Californians voted on whether current California Governor Gavin Newsom should be removed from office.
According to CNN, the push to remove him from his position began last year, most notably due to his decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many candidates stepped up and that included Caitlyn Jenner.
However, after the poll results came out, it was revealed that Jenner received only 55,891 votes, which is just 1.1% of the total statewide vote, in the “replace” section of the recall ballot.
This is in spite of the fact that Jenner gave a lot of publicity to her campaign. Caitlyn Jenner lost a huge amount, as Larry Elder earned the most votes for the “replace” nomination with 2,373,571 votes, almost 47% of the total statewide vote. In the end Newsom got 63% of the votes and stayed in power. Jenner spoke about this as well and was understandably disappointed.
“He didn’t campaign to do this recall on not one of his successes because he doesn’t have any,” Jenner remarked in her concession speech. “And I can’t believe that this many people actually voted to keep him in office. It’s a shame. Honestly, it’s a shame. You kind of get the government you deserve.”
Due to such a humiliating loss, perhaps Caitlyn Jenner will realize politics isn’t exactly the right thing for her and focus on other ventures.
