Why is Kim Kardashian not supporting Caitlyn Jenner's run for governor? 'It's bad for business,' says source
'While Kylie wants to be supportive, none of the sisters feel comfortable endorsing Caitlyn and are especially hesitant after Kanye’s disastrous presidential run'
Ever since Caitlyn Jenner announced her plans for running for Governor of California, social media has had a field day as many shared their opinions about her plans for the future. A little birdie close to the family reveals that Kim Kardashian "will not” actually be endorsing Jenner's run as the move would be "bad for business".
According to an exclusive in The Sun, Kim's sisters Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall also plan to "follow suit". But not Kylie Jenner, who is known to have a very close relationship with her father.
A source has come forward to reveal that Kim "will NOT be endorsing Caitlyn Jenner." The 40-year-old apparently has "made that clear to her friends and family already and it looks like Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall will follow suit," the source added.
But the situation is different for Kylie as the source reveals that she is "on the fence" on how to handle the situation.
The insider said, "She does not want to let her dad down as they've always had the closest relationship but she does not agree with her politics."
Once bitten twice shy
It looks like the Kardashian clan is attempting to keep their distance from Jenner's campaign — which is presumably going to be as a Republican — because of the family's recent tryst with politics.
"While Kylie wants to be supportive, none of the sisters feel comfortable endorsing Caitlyn and are especially hesitant after Kanye’s disastrous presidential run."
As it turns out, Kris Jenner is also "very much against" any of her daughters supporting Jenner's latest political venture. "It has nothing to do with their personal history. It’s bad for business and Kris is trying to make sure her kids remember that," the source claimed. Kris was married to Caitlyn from 1991 to 2015.
Kim and Kylie were deemed "billionaires" by Forbes as a result of their successful business ventures including SKIMS, KKW Beauty and Kylie Cosmetics and their massive social media following.
Caitlyn's run for Governor of California
On April 23, 2021, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star announced on an official 'Caitlyn for California' site that she is in the race.
"California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality," the website read. "But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision."
It is no secret that Caitlyn has been a longtime Republican, who is hoping to replace Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom — in fact, she also took a dig at him for which social media schooled her.
Caitlyn used to be a supporter of Donald Trump — even wearing a 'Make America Great Again' red hat. But she soon removed her endorsement because of his anti-LGBTQ policies. "I thought Trump would help trans people. I was wrong," she had reportedly written in The Washington Post.
