Kim Kardashian is getting political.
On Friday, the reality TV star shared with her 313 million Instagram followers that she is supporting candidate Rick Caruso for mayor of Los Angeles.
“I recently met Rick Caruso, candidate for mayor of Los Angeles, and I don’t usually support anyone in politics,” she said in an Instagram Story video. “When it comes to my hometown and there are people there who can really make a difference, I think he can really help with crime in our city, which is such a big problem.”

Kardashian then shared that “Rick Caruso is my choice” and urged her followers to come out and “use their power” to vote.
