Caitlyn Jenner‘s first political ad in her attempt to recall and replace California Governor Gavin Newsom is heavy on her Olympic glory, but completely ignores her reality TV fame and her Kardashian daughters.
Candidate Caitlyn brands herself a “dreamer” and a “compassionate disruptor,” in the 3-minute video in a clear attempt to distance herself from “career politicians” … but also seems to distance herself from her own family.
Not only is there no mention of the TV show that made Caitlyn a household name for the younger generation of California voters, but she also chose to omit the name Jenner along with Kardashian … her slogan is simply, “Caitlyn for California.”
As we first reported, Caitlyn’s kids aren’t thrilled with her candidacy and her daughters are making it clear they won’t campaign on her behalf — so, using ‘KUWTK’ clips would have been awkward.
Of course, the ad is also chock full of typical political mudslinging despite her attempt to be viewed as a non-politician. Caitlyn includes the notorious clips of Rep. Nancy Pelosi at the hairdresser, and the shot of Newsom — who she dubs an “elitist” — at a French Laundry dinner party … both events happening during pandemic lockdowns.
As you know … Jenner threw her hat into the race for Gov. last month, but has already sparked her first major controversy with her take on trans girls competing in girls’ sports.
