Caitlyn Jenner said Thursday that she had already texted Kanye West to ask about being named his running mate.
Jenner was leaving Starbucks when a TMZ reporter approached to ask whether or not she would be supporting West — who filed federal election documents earlier in the day — in his bid for the presidency. (RELATED: ‘Kanye 2020’: Kanye West Files To Run For President)

“So, I really gotta know this question, Caitlyn,” the reporter said as he approached.
“All right,” Jenner appeared to be agreeable, prompting a laugh from the reporter.
“So are you gonna vote for Kanye for president, now that Kanye’s running you think?” the reporter asked.
Jenner didn’t miss a beat before responding, “Well, I texted him and said, ‘Can I be your VP?'”
“Oh, that’s a genius idea!” the reporter responded as Jenner approached a black SUV.
“Yes, I know, what a combination,” Jenner’s reply sounded only half serious as the reporter laughed and encouraged Jenner to pursue that further.
West has filed two sets of documents so far — a Statement of Candidacy and an application to get his name on the ballot in Oklahoma. He missed the Wednesday deadline to have his name added to the ballot in Florida.
