"I have considered it", Jenner, 67, replied. "I like the political side of it", said Jenner while speaking while speaking to John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in NY.

"I gotta find out where I can do a better job", she said.

Caitlyn, who won an Olympic gold medal for the U.S. at the Games in 1976, explained that she has already worked with the American Unity Fund in a bid to ensure lawmakers understand LGBT issues. "And we are in the process of determining that".

"When I sit down with Republican senators, they'll tell me they've never met a trans person before and they'll mention their faith", she continued.

According to Caitlyn, she might just be moving forward with plans to run for a seat in the California Senate.

Since coming out as transgender, Jenner has spoken about a number of issues including her own struggles with mental health. Can I do a better job from the outside? Or are you better off from the inside?

This is at least the second time she has gone on record discussing her possible political aspirations. That, I realize is in anyone's mind is different, but you asked me what I think. Incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D), who has held the seat since 1992, is very popular in California, but it's not clear whether Feinstein, who is 84 years old and the oldest member of the Senate, will run for reelection in 2018.

Jenner told host John Catsimatidis she has long held conservative economic beliefs and would like to help evolve the Republican party, which has faced perceptions it is less accepting of alternative lifestyles than the Democratic party.

She explained: "The perception of the Republican Party is that they are all about rich white guys trying to make money".

However, she also said that her "deal-breaker with the Republican party" was that "if you mess with my community - you don't give us equality and a fair shot - I'm coming after you".

Many would expect her transgender status to align her with the Democrats, but Jenner is a staunch Republican. "I believe in the people, not in massive government".
