Kashkari far outpaces Donnelly in cash on hand

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari has $1.4 million on hand as he tries to overtake fellow Republican Tim Donnelly's cash-starved campaign ahead of California's June 3 primary.

Kashkari, a former U.S. Treasury official, reported Thursday that he has raised $4 million total. Half of that is his own money, accounting for roughly 40 percent of his stated personal wealth.

Donnelly, a state Assemblyman from Twin Peaks, reported raising about $450,000 total. He has just $70,000 available, but more than twice that in debt.

The favored candidate of conservative activists has had the edge so far in public opinion surveys despite his fundraising struggles. Kashkari has been closing the gap after spending on campaign commercials and mailers.

Those same surveys show Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown advancing easily to the general election.
