SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Caitlyn Jenner has held her first news conference as a Republican candidate for California governor. It was devoid of any detailed policy discussion 77 days after she announced she was entering a recall election that could remove first-term Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Fielding questions for just under 15 minutes Friday, the reality TV personality and former Olympian says she's a serious candidate and asserted she's leading the field of potential Republican replacement candidates.
She said she will release her tax returns next week and is planning a month-long statewide bus tour. She suggested more desalination plants to deal with the drought but didn't say when or where such plants could be built.
