Caitlyn Jenner, who recently caused a stir by jumping into the recall race to try to overthrow California Gov. Gavin Newsom, has vowed to veto any tax increase in her state if she is elected governor.
“Just one of my solutions to save California,” Jenner wrote in a tweet citing her plan.
“When I am governor, I will veto any tax increase. Full stop, ”the former Olympian and famous member of the Kardashian dynasty wrote under the“ Solutions ”tab of her campaign website.
“California has the highest personal income tax and the highest state sales tax in the country. Add property tax, federal tax, local tax, gasoline tax, excise taxes and some kind of government tax on almost everything we do, ”Jenner added.
“Newsom’s administration is based on the mistaken view that we provide an endless stream of funding to a government that rarely cuts, hardly ever assesses progress, and emphatically denies responsibility,” Jenner wrote in a jab. to his opponent in place.

The Republican gubernatorial candidate also pledged to “cut duplicate programs”, “streamline spending” and “hold the legislature accountable” if elected.
Other priorities on its solutions page include reducing regulations, reopening schools and businesses, and tackling the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in the Golden State.
Newsom faces an upcoming special election, likely to be held in the fall, after recall organizers crossed the bar to collect nearly 1.5 million signatures for their petition. A governor has not been successfully recalled since 2003, when another celebrity replaced Gray Davis – Arnold Schwarzenegger.
A number of enthusiastic GOP candidates have entered the race, but Newsom’s campaign immediately committed the offense when Jenner announced her race last month, attempting to tie her to former President Trump.
NEWSOM IMPROVE MONEY REACH JENNER
Jenner posted her first campaign video on Tuesday. The video hammers Newsom as an “elitist” and says it’s “time to reopen” after the coronavirus lockdowns.
Jenner, who will appear on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” Wednesday, enters a field of candidates that includes 2018 Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox, former San Diego mayor Kevin Falconer and others. Former acting director of national intelligence Ric Grenell, who publicly backed the recall effort, has neither confirmed he will get involved in the recall race nor dispelled rumors he is considering it.

The recall ballot consists of two questions. The first is whether the incumbent governor should be recalled. The second is, if more than half of voters say yes to the first question, who should replace the governor. More than 50% of Californians would have to vote “yes” on the first question so that anyone in the crowded Republicans field could stand a chance.
