Caitlyn Jenner has officially joined the race to become the next governor of California.
Caitlyn announced her campaign on Twitter shortly after with a press release confirming her intentions to replace Democratic governor Gavin Newsom.
She said: "California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality.
"But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision."
The 71-year-old added: "I have been a congressional disruptor throughout my life, from representing the United States and winning a gold medal at the Olympics to helping advance the movement of equality.
"As Californians, we face a now or never opportunity to fundamentally fix our state before it's too late."
