CNN)Caitlyn Jenner is attempting to defy ideological definition as she runs to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom in California's all-but-certain recall election, telling CNN's Dana Bash that she didn't vote for former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election -- and, in fact, didn't bother to vote at all. "I didn't even vote," Jenner told Bash in a wide-ranging interview at her home in Malibu. "Out here in California, it's like, why vote for a Republican president? It's just not going to work. I mean, it's overwhelming."
Jenner, who is registered as a Republican in California, seemed particularly reluctant to wade into the controversy that Trump has created over the 2020 election and GOP efforts to restrict voting rights, leading Bash to note that it was important for Jenner to share her views because the party has continued to drive Trump's agenda forward in that area. "The reason I'm asking you about this is because you are a Republican," Bash said at one point. "I'm kind of on the Republican side," Jenner interjected.
