The 71-year-old Jenner reported the news Friday morning.
“I’m in! California is worth fighting for,” she tweeted.
In a letter posted to social media, Jenner took aim at Gov. Gavin Newsom, who is facing a possible recall election later this year.
“This isn’t the California we know,” Jenner wrote. “This is Gavin Newsom’s California, where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with lobbyist friends.”
The Olympic gold-medal winner will join a crowded field, that includes former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and businessman John Cox.
