Campaign filings show that Jenner’s campaign committee has spent $910,233 but raised only $737,385.
Jenner has $21,568 in cash, according to a campaign finance report.
Jenner, who’s running as a Republican in the Sept. 14 gubernatorial recall election, has spent more than one-fourth of the money on former Trump campaign adviser Brad Parscale and former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer.
However, numerous signs have shown that the campaign does not have a serious plan to win California’s highest office.
Jenner abandoned the campaign trail in the final two months to film a reality television show, Celebrity Big Brother.
Despite previous efforts to invoke both the Reagan and Trump revolutions, the transgender candidate’s social views do not align with the mainstream Republicans, and even less so with the party’s dominant “America First” camp.
Jenner treats transgenderism as a lifestyle choice, rather than a mental illness, and proudly supports many tenets of the LGBT ideology.
Newsom’s $40 million fundraising haul dwarfs both leading Republican contenders.
Republicans still have a chance in September, though.
Californians can recall Newsom with a simple majority vote in an election where low-information voters may not turn out. If the majority votes to remove Newsom, then the candidate who wins a plurality will become governor.
Polling shows that 50% of Californians presently want Newsom to remain governor while 47% want him removed, Reason reported.
Elder has a strong lead among the replacements. He garnered 18% support in the poll, compared to Faulconer’s second-place finish with 10%.
Although benefiting from considerable name-recognition, Jenner came in fifth place with 3% support.
