The reality TV star and former US Olympic athlete has also sought advice from Caroline Wren, another Republican operative who fundraised for Trump's 2020 campaign. </p><p><a href="https://www.axios.com/caitlyn-jenner-california-governor-newsom-recall-a2815644-5855-4162-9ed9-50c93a01ae0d.html" data-analytics-module="body_link" data-analytics-post-depth="40" data-uri="be450d83ad04d19e4457d8be7265a759">Axios first reported</a> earlier this week that Jenner, a longtime Republican, is <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/caitlyn-jenner-is-considering-a-run-for-california-governor-report-2021-4">considering</a> her debut run for office as embattled Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a recall attempt. California is a solidly blue state and Newsom was elected with 61% of the vote in 2018, but the state has had a few Republican governors, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronald Reagan. </p><p>Trump turned against Parscale last year as his poll numbers dropped and reports about his longtime aide's aggressive spending habits. Parscale, who <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/brad-parscale-interview-trump-campaign-2020-12">told Insider</a> that he was "slowly pushed out" of the campaign, was <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/video-trumps-former-campaign-manager-brad-parscale-tackled-by-police-2020-9">arrested and hospitalized</a> in September after his wife, Candice Parscale, alleged he was drunk, suicidal, and had hit her. Candice later <a href="https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/30/brad-parscale-stepping-down-trump-campaign-424069">retracted</a> her statements to the police and a federal judge ordered that Parscale's guns be removed from his possession. </p><p>Parscale was <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/brad-parscale-trump-kushner-digital-email-website-postpresidency-45officecom-2021-2">brought back onto Trump's team</a> to build the former president's new website and help lead his digital efforts after the election. </p><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/caitlyn-jenner-getting-campaign-advice-from-trump-aide-brad-parscale-2021-4#comments">Join the conversation about this story »</a></p> <p>NOW WATCH: <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/worlds-most-expensive-liquid-thoroughbred-horse-semen-2020-3">Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid</a></p> Click here to read full news..
