Caitlyn Jenner, a former Olympic champion and champion of the transgender community has "considered" a run for Senate in California because she feels compelled to change the "perception of the Republican party" as one of equality.

"The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me," Jenner told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y. of her campaign for transgender rights and equality for the LGBTQ community. "Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job.

"Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that.

"Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run."

Jenner told host John Catsimatidis she has long held conservative economic beliefs and would like to help evolve the Republican party, which has faced perceptions it is less accepting of alternative lifestyles than the Democratic party.

"I would hope in the next generation, because it's going to take a generation, that we can change the perception of the Republican party and make it the party of equality," Jenner told Catsimatidis. "If you can do that, you can make it socially aware of what's going on, but conservatively, economically, that's the way to go.

"It will take awhile to change people's thinking."

Jenner is author of "The Secrets of My Life," available on Amazon.
