    If Jenner took any other position, she would get two dozen votes in the Republican primary. Not that her position will do her any good in that primary, anyway. It is a vanity campaign with no prospect of success.

      There is no primary for the recall election, Tom.

    CJ has a very sharp kick. Don’t stand behind her and you won’t have to worry about it.

    It occurs to me just now that a former very famous athlete might have an opinion on the matter. But that’s not part of the story. The story is she said it. Done. I don’t know why she’s running for governor and I worry (pah! not really!) about Republican governors of California who are famous on TV.

    I’m surprised, but you are right. If the recall fails, Governor Newsom will remain Governor. If the recall succeeds, then the next Governor will be the opponent with the highest vote total among the 25 +/- opposition candidates.

    Governor Newsom could get 49.9% of the vote, losing the recall, paving the way for election of the highest opposition candidate (almost certainly one of the six serious Republican candidates), even if that candidate gets only a 10-15% plurality.

    You don’t need to worry about it. Jenner has made enough prior statements in favor of allowing trans women to participate in sports on an equal footing that she will be easy to take down even without using her anti-Trump recordHer candidacy is doomed.

    Jenner told Hannity she would “surround myself with some of the smartest people out there.”
    Where have we heard that before?

      Republican executive branch politicians like to be at the top of a powerful food chain. Their Democratic counterparts like to be (caught) in the middle of a web.
