Kim Kardashian will reportedly "not" endorse Caitlyn Jenner for the governor of California as it will be "bad business".

While sister Kylie Jenner remains "on the fence", the rest of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family are also said to be steering away from supporting the former Olympian's foray into politics.

A source told The Sun: "She has made that clear to her friends and family already, and it looks like Kourtney, Khloe and Kendall will follow suit."

Caitlyn, 71, announced on Friday that she had officially submitted the initial paperwork to run for governor of California and debuted her new campaign website

However, while Kim is "close" to Caitlyn, she's not planning to back her on her campaign trail as she "does not agree with her on politics".

It is also claimed that Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, who was previously married to Caitlyn for 24 years, is 'very much against' any family members supporting the former athlete.

"It has nothing to do with their personal history. It's bad for business, and Kris is trying to make sure her kids remember that," the source concluded.

Meanwhile, Caitlyn shared a passionate statement on her new campaign website in which she vowed to take on "entrenched Sacramento politicians" as she "isn't afraid to do what is right."

The I Am Cait star also addressed small businesses who have been "devastated" by the pandemic and said, "taxes are too high".

In a statement, she wrote: "California have been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality.

"But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision."

"This isn't the California we know. This is Gavin Newsom's California, where he orders us to stay home but goes out to dinner with his lobbyist friends," she continued.

Caitlyn's run for governor of California has drawn mixed responses online, with some claiming her political views would hinder the state, while others thought it was an incredible idea.
