Caitlyn Jenner Finishes Behind Other Challengers, Garners Only 1% of the Vote in California Recall Election

Despite entering the race to great fanfare, Caitlyn Jenner garnered only 1% of the vote in the California recall election yesterday.

It appears that the transgender candidate, who ran as a Republican, will finish with less than 100k votes, compared to the over 2 million votes logged for fellow Republican challenger Larry Elder.

Jenner previously insisted that Elder helped Newsom in the election. and suggested that “He was kind of the gift that Democrats needed to attack right now and I feel in a lot of ways that (Elder) has only helped Gavin Newsom with this recall.”

“California is really center — maybe center left — and so when Larry got in, we kind of lost that,” Jenner reportedly told the Post.

In an interview yesterday, Jenner told Newsmax that she was “pleased” with the way the campaign had gone and that it was “up in the air” on what was going to happen.

“I’m hoping for the best,” Jenner explained.
