Republicans for governor debate in low-key race
May 16, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

ANAHEIM — Republicans who want California Gov. Jerry Brown’s job clashed over gun rights and the direction of the GOP in their first and possibly only joint appearance of the primary campaign.

With less than three weeks until the June 3 election, former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari accused fellow Republican Tim Donnelly of denigrating Hispanics, blacks and Jews. He suggested Donnelly couldn’t beat the Democratic governor by alienating a broad swath of the state voters.

Donnelly dismissed the criticism as the desperation of a struggling candidate. Kashkari has lagged in polls.

The two also argued over a Donnelly proposal involving gun permits.

The candidates dueled during a 90-minute showdown on KFI-AM’s “John and Ken Show” that aired live.

The two leading Republicans are striving for attention in a low-visibility contest.
