With former governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura as recent examples, President Donald Trump wasn’t the first celebrity to run for political office.
He wasn’t even the first celebrity to win the White House, Ronald Reagan, anyone?
But with the president’s unconventional electoral success last year, a number of celebrities have been said to have taken an interest in parlaying their talents and enormous fan bases into political runs of their own. The country-rock-rap musical artist known as “Kid Rock,” Robert Ritchie, has already announced he is running for U.S. Senate in his home state of Michigan.
And now, Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner has announced he is exploring his political options.
