Caitlyn Jenner Advised the Kardashian-Jenner Children to ‘Stay Out’ of Her Gubernatorial Race

Caitlyn Jenner is gearing up for a gubernatorial run in California without the assistance of her celebrity family.

The 71-year-old former Olympian opened up to California Rebel Base podcast co-host Steve Hilton about her decision to keep her family and political ambitions separate, stating that she would not want her position as a Republican to hurt any of the KarJenner brands, which would almost certainly happen if her children publicly endorsed Caitlyn.

“I called up each one of them and said, ‘Hey, this is what I’m looking to do,’ and I said, ‘I want you guys out of it,'” Jenner explained.

“I told my kids, when you do something like this, it’s not just me making decisions. Obviously, I come first on the decision-making but then really the influencing and — I don’t know if you know, but I have a very high-profile family,” she quipped during the podcast.

She noted that while private assistance is always appreciated, she will not seek favors from her high-profile children.

“You know, politics can be a dirty business, and they have brands, they have all the other things that they’re doing, they have companies that they’re doing,” Jenner said. “[I told them] I don’t want you involved, I don’t want one dime, I don’t want one tweet, one Instagram post. I said, ‘just stay out of it.'”

Caitlyn’s approach may explain why Brody Jenner, 38, has been “avoiding” inquiries about Caitlyn’s campaign.

Additionally, Caitlyn stated in April that she would not anticipate her children pounding the pavement on her behalf due to their socially liberal ideas and her previous opposition to homosexual marriage.

Due to her prior involvement in criminal justice reform, Kim Kardashian, Caitlyn’s stepdaughter, would be the sole exemption.

“Obviously, Kim is the only one because of her work on criminal justice reform, and obviously, we’ve talked about that, you know,” Jenner said. “We’ve talked about it, but I really didn’t want her involved in this campaign whatsoever.”

“But, you know, as far as criminal justice reform, which I think is very important in California, she does have my cell phone number,” the candidate continued.

Jenner is vying to succeed California Governor Gavin Newsom, who is presently facing a recall election, and will have to overcome the favorite in the campaign, talk show personality Larry Elder.
