Kashkari adds $1 million more to governor’s race
May 17, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — Former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari is giving his campaign for governor another $1 million, bringing his personal contributions to $2 million. That amounts to about 40 percent of his stated personal wealth.

Kashkari reported the contribution Friday, a little more than two weeks before the June 3 primary.

The GOP candidate has been locked in a fight with Republican state Assemblyman Tim Donnelly. Polls in April showed him trailing Donnelly.

The extra money brings the former Goldman Sachs investment banker’s fundraising to $2.7 million since mid-March, when he reported having $900,000 on hand.

Donnelly’s campaign has brought in just $165,000 since reporting $150,000 in debts in mid-March.

Republican stalwarts have coalesced around Kashkari as Donnelly has continued to try link Kashkari, who is Indian-American, to fundamentalist Islamic law.
