Appearing on CNN, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum was asked whether he would accept Caitlyn Jenner's endorsement.

Earlier this month, Jenner made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, instantly making her America's most recognizable transgender woman.

In a previous interview, Jenner revealed that she was a Republican.

“Do you welcome [Jenner to the Republican Party]?” host Erin Burnett asked.

“If Caitlyn Jenner wanted to endorse me would I accept the endorsement, the answer is, if that's the way she feels about my candidacy, sure,” Santorum answered, adding that he's learned never to ask why someone is voting for him.

“You accept their vote, but do you accept her?” Burnett asked.

“My job as a human being is to treat everybody with dignity and respect, period, stop, full stop. No qualification to that,” he answered.
