Gov. Jerry Brown reported Monday that he has raised nearly $20 million for his re-election campaign, far outpacing the two leading Republican candidates competing for the right to challenge him.
The $976,000 reported Wednesday includes contributions from former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and his wife, Kashkari’s parents and several bankers at Goldman Sachs, Kashkari’s former employer.
“Keep the government out of our homes, out of our hospitals, out of our bedrooms,” he says.
Those who have heard of Neel Kashkari know him as the former U.S. Treasury official who was in charge of the bank bailout at the height of the recession.
