Today, the Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner [inaudible 00:00:07]
Caitlyn Jenner: (00:08)
I’ve always been a dreamer.
Caitlyn Jenner: (00:10)
California was once the envy of the world. We had what everyone else wanted. The American dream grew up here.
Caitlyn Jenner: (00:20)
Yet career politicians and their policies have destroyed that dream. It’s been locked away, closed, shuttered, left in the dark, burned down.
Caitlyn Jenner: (00:34)
The government is now involved in every part of our lives. They’ve taken our money, our jobs, and our freedom. California needs a disruptor, a compassionate disruptor.
Caitlyn Jenner: (00:50)
I came here with a dream 48 years ago to be the greatest athlete in the world. Now I enter a different kind of race, arguably my most important one yet, to save California.
Caitlyn Jenner: (01:05)
I want to carry the torch for the parents who had to balance work and their child’s education, for business owners who were forced to shut down, for pastors who were not able to be with their congregation, for the family who lost their home in a fire, for an entire generation of students who lost a year of education.
Caitlyn Jenner: (01:24)
This past year has redefined our career politicians as elitists and the people of California as the warriors, the kings, and the angels. We never take kindly to glass ceilings here. Instead, we shatter them.
Sports announcer: (01:42)
This one’s way out there.
Caitlyn Jenner: (01:43)
We’re the trailblazers, the innovators. California’s facing big hurdles. Now, we need leaders who are unafraid to leap to new heights …
Sports announcer: (01:57)
Jenner [inaudible 00:01:58] He wants the world record.
Caitlyn Jenner: (01:58)
… who are unafraid to challenge and to change the status quo.
Caitlyn Jenner: (02:01)
I want to prove that it is absolutely possible if we only do it together.
Caitlyn Jenner: (02:09)
California, it’s time to reopen our schools, reopen our businesses, reopen the Golden Gates. So I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Democrat. I’m running to be governor for all Californians, to reclaim our true identity, to bring back the gold to the Golden State.
Sports announcer: (02:31)
And what a tremendous victory.
Caitlyn Jenner: (02:31)
Now is the time to achieve that summit, to be the shining city on the hill. Together, we’ll restore and renew the California dream.
Sports announcer: (02:40)
Bruce Jenner is [inaudible 00:02:44].
Caitlyn Jenner: (02:43)
It’s about what happens from here. It’s not just about one person. It’s about all of us.
