Paris Jackson tweeted in support of Caitlyn Jenner on Monday after the transgender reality star revealed she’s considering the possibility of running for Senate to represent the LGBTQ community.

When asked about her political ambitions in an interview with New York’s AM 970 that aired Sunday, the former Olympian and lifelong Republican said, “I have considered it. I like the political side of it.” She added, “Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside? Kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that.” Jenner continued, “Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run.”

Jackson responded to the interview on Monday by first acknowledging she’d prefer to see a different transgender celebrity take a Senate seat. “I’d rather laverne cox run for senate but hey beggars can’t be choosers,” the model noted, before further avowing, “caitlyn’s got my vote.” Cox, of course, is an actress and LGBTQ advocate best known for her role on “Orange Is the New Black.” When one of the model’s followers argued, “I don’t think the world needs another celebrity conservative Republican politician,” Jackson noted, “yeah i mean i hear the lgbtq community doesn’t really endorse her, but regardless, having a trans woman in office is still a step forward.”

It should be noted, the transgender star’s potential political career is only hypothetical at this point in time. Earlier this year, a rep for the reality star told us Jenner isn’t running for the California State Senate, despite and OK! story claiming otherwise. Gossip Cop also busted In Touch after it wrongly reported in May that Jenner was running for Mayor of Malibu. However, we’ll keep monitoring the situation should she make an official decision about running for office.
