CAITLYN Jenner is reportedly being advised by ex-Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale as she considers a run for California governor.
Parscale is not a campaign manager, but is providing guidance on how to build out a team should she run, according to the New York Times.

Axios reported on Monday that Jenner was considering a run, as California’s current governor, Gavin Newsom, is facing a recall election.
The ex-advisor was detained at his home by police and forcibly hospitalized a few days before his resignation after barricading himself inside his home with guns.
Jenner, who has spent decades in the spotlight, first as Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete and then as a reality TV star, has also reportedly met with Caroline Wren.

Wren, a longtime GOP fundrasier, and Jenner met through her work with the American Unity Fund, a GOP nonprofit focused on LGBTQ issues, according to Axios.
Wren also previously worked for Trump with Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for the former president’s 2020 campaign — and helped organize the rally he attended immediately before the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Jenner was widely known as a Republican, and even joked at the 2016 Republican National Convention that she “got more trouble for coming out as a Republican than I did for being trans.”
In 2020, however, the year that marked the five-year anniversary of her transition, she said she had “changed her political views.”
While she previously threw her support behind Trump, she revoked that support in 2018.
She publicly spoke against the former president’s stance on gay marriage to Diane Sawyer on “20/20,” saying “I am 100% behind gay marriage, let’s clear that up right now.”
She also publicly criticized Trump’s decision to reverse a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms on Twitter, calling it “a disaster.”
