“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me," said Jenner on AM 970 in New York.

Olympic gold medalist Caitlyn Jenner says she has "considered" a run for U.S. Senate.

"I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” said Jenner while speaking while speaking with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York. Jenner also mentioned her involvement with the American Unity Fund, which helps the Republican party improve on LGBT issues.

“The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me," 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 talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that. Yea, but I would look for a senatorial run,”

Jenner previously told CNN's Don Lemon in April that she originally thought she would never run for office but would "seriously look at it" if she felt she could make a significant difference.

“Yes, I would have to look, over the next year or two, look and see, can I do a better job on the outside or am I in a position now that I can do a better job for my community on the inside,” Jenner told Lemon. “And if that’s the case, if I find us on the inside, I would seriously look at it."

Jenner's comments come after Kid Rock recently expressed he is running for U.S. Senate. After his comments were met with some skepticism, Rock assured his fans on his website that his run is not a hoax.
