Dear Californians,

            I’m hopeful for the future of California.  I may be running for Governor to put our state and its massive government on a different path, but I’m optimistic because I know just how capable we are of making this brighter future a reality.

            In Gavin Newsom’s California, businesses have shuttered, livelihoods have been lost, our economy has been devastated, and our kids still cannot go back to school.  But I know Gavin Newsom’s California is in its final days and we have a chance to rebuild a better quality of life for everyone.

            Many people know me as a gold medal Olympian, television personality or as an advocate for fairness and equality for all people. But I’m serious about running for Governor because California is worth fighting for. 

            Though I come from a long line of leaders, I never thought I would run for office. I was focused on building successful businesses in exercise, aviation, and entertainment industries and advocating for causes in which I thought I could make a difference.  But that isn’t enough right now - California needs more.

            In fact, our state needs a disrupter of its massive, failed government.  I will be that thoughtful disrupter with the right ideas and God-given skills to save California from Newsom’s economic destruction. 

We need a leader willing to stand up to the special interests that have funded Gavin Newsom’s political ambitions, and who in return have benefitted from preferential treatment at the expense of Californians.

We need a fighter willing to take on single-party rule, demand accountability, welcome fresh ideas, and work with anyone willing to stand up for this state regardless of their party registration, ideology or experiences.

We need a leader that will bring the best and the brightest together so we can safely and quickly open California, allow businesses to rebuild, eliminate unnecessary regulations, lower taxes, tackle homelessness, and finally get our children back to school.

I’m running because I know the only thing Gavin Newsom will disrupt is our economy and the livelihoods of innocent Californians. There is no other candidate in this race with the experience, leadership, and ability to take on the status quo in order to bring us out of the long, dark shadow of Gavin Newsom’s California.

Our state is worth fighting for, but it won’t happen on Gavin Newsom’s watch. So, I’m running to usher in the brighter future we deserve, and I hope you’ll join me - because if we don’t do this together, we’ll all suffer.

I hope you will join me and the millions of Californians willing to fight for our great state. 


We can do it,
