Caitlyn Jenner was hoping to become governor of California, as votes have now been counted, many are wondering just how many votes Caitlyn got in the California Recall Election.
The 71-year-old reality TV star known for being on Keeping Up With The Kardashians was one of 46 candidates who became a California gubernatorial candidate.
Read on to discover how many votes Caitlyn has received and discover why the former Olympian wanted to take over Newsom.
How many votes did Caitlyn Jenner get?
Caitlyn Jenner currently holds 1.1 per cent with 94.4 per cent of the partial precinct recall votes that have been counted. There doesn’t seem to be any hope for Kendall and Kylie’s dad even though the tally currently doesn’t include vote-by-mail or provisional ballots.
The successful candidate would replace Governor Gavin Newsom, and Cait wanted to do just that. However, Caitlyn only came in the top 15 after 67 per cent of the votes were in, meaning she has only received 55,150 votes.
Caitlyn Jenner responded to the outcome of California’s recall so far, and as a GOP candidate Caitlyn thanked her supporters:
“And I thought I really needed some great people to surround me, to help me get through this, that know the ins and outs of politics. And I was able to assemble a great team, a great group of people. And I have to thank all of them, for giving me the guidance, the help, the work on issues. To find out where the issues are, what do we need to fight for.”

Caitlyn also made an appearance on Newsmax and explained how desperate she was to get Gavin Newsom out, claiming that “everybody know’s he’s doing a horrible job.” Although it seems the results of the votes portray a different story.
“For me, it’s just so up in the air [with] what is going to happen,” she said. “I’m hoping for the best. Number one, we gotta get Gavin Newsom outta there. I think it’s going to be difficult doing that, but I’m hoping for the best.”
“Honestly, every place I go—I mean, on the street, here and there—the people, they’re all coming up to me and saying, ‘We gotta get rid of this guy. We gotta recall Gavin Newsom.’ I’ve only had one person come up to me in the last five months and say, ‘I think he’s doing a great job.’ That just doesn’t happen. Everybody knows he’s doing a horrible job.”
