“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” said Jenner, who is a Republican. “The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me.”
“Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job,” Jenner added. “Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that. Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run.”
According to USA Today, Jenner most likely would be running for Democrat Dianne Feinstein’s seat.READ MORE: Chey Smart Of Costa Mesa Arrested After Drone Carrying Drugs Lands At Theo Lacy Jail In Orange
