Caitlyn Jenner Says Fox News Role Is More Fitting Than CA Governor Run

Caitlyn Jenner hopes her voice will make a bigger impact on Fox News than it may have in the governor’s chair. The transgender athlete turned reality star signed a deal with the network as a contributor. Her first paid appearance was Thursday on Hannity.

“I’ve been doing a lot of stuff with Fox News over the last few years and eventually I got to the point where I was like, ‘Guys, maybe it’s time to do something more official’ and they agreed and we worked out a deal, so I think it’s going to be very good. It gives me a very good platform. I have always been on the conservative side with less taxes, less regulations, pro-business environment and I just don’t like to see what’s happening in our country right now,” Jenner told Los Angeles magazine.
