According to Axios, Wren first met Jenner during their work with the American Unity Fund, a GOP nonprofit fixating on LGBT issues.
Wren additionally worked with President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. While it isn’t clear who Republican voters and party bigwigs may gravitate toward if Newsom is prosperously recalled, some reports have noted that Trump allies are looking to former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to supersede Newsom.
According to Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle, “sources habituated with the matter verbally express Grenell is definitely considering a run for the governor’s mansion if a recall Election is triggered.”
