She's officially getting into politics! After weeks of reports and rumors claiming Caitlyn Jenner would be running for governor, the reality star has now shared the news. As reported by NPR, Jenner took to Twitter to share her decision with her followers.

"I’m in! California is worth fighting for," Jenner wrote on social media, along with attaching a press release announcing her run for California governor. As of today, it looks like the former Olympian has filed the paperwork and is planning a "formal announcement" to come out in "the coming weeks." See her post below.

This move may not be surprising considering the rumors in past weeks, but Jenner running for governor does feel a bit out of left field when you think about it. She's been openly very political for years, revealing how supported Donald Trump and then realized that was a mistake. However, it's still very unclear what career path Jenner has planned considering her recent activity.

During the current season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner enlisted the help of her ex-wife, Kris Jenner, to start up her own YouTube channel. She then competed on The Masked Singer, and more recently, she joined TikTok star Noah Beck for his YouTube series Beckseat Driver. Some fans think Jenner is just trying anything she can to stay relevant, and while that's pretty harsh, it's also not untrue.

We'll be curious to see how Jenner's campaign goes, and we'll keep you updated once we get more news about it.
