Californian Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says if elected she would pardon people who were unfairly targeted and charged in the state with breaking COVID-19 protocols.

"As governor, I’ll have my Admin review cases where small business owners, churches, schools, and law-abiding citizens have been unfairly targeted," Jenner tweeted Thursday. "Californians unfairly targeted will be pardoned."

Jenner's vow follows Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis make a similar statement earlier this week.

Jenner is running as part of a recall election on Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. Californias as early as November will decide in a ballot initiative whether to recall Newsom, facing recall largely for his handling of the pandemic.
