Vicki Gunvalson’s Fiancé Steve Lodge Is Running For Governor Of California!

Steve Chavez Lodge, the fiancé of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson, is running for Governor of California.

According to PEOPLE, Lodge announced his campaign in an Instagram post on Tuesday, writing, "I was born and raised in California and spent my adult life here, it was a time when people still called California the Golden State. I raised my children in California, and now I am watching my grandchildren grow up here."

"However, I can no longer stand by and watch my beautiful state being destroyed by bad decisions made by Sacramento career politicians," he continued. "It's time for the people of California to regain control of their government, not only at the state level, but in the counties, cities, and school boards."

"Enough is enough, California," Lodge wrote. "Help me 'Make California, California Again.' I will lead this movement with your help to see California once again as the Golden State she once was."

In an accompanying video message, Lodge added that he'll be sharing his "strategy on how to save California" in the coming days.

Gunvalson reposted Lodge's video on her own Instagram account minutes after the retired homicide detective announced his campaign.

"I'm so proud of Steve!" Gunvalson, who got engaged to Lodge in 2019, wrote in the caption. "Go get 'em!"

Lodge's announcement comes two months after Caitlyn Jenner publicly declared her intention to run for the Governor of California. According to L.A. Times, other candidates vying to challenge Newsom include former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer, former Rep. Doug Ose, and Mary Carey, a retired porn actress.
