Here is Republican Neel Kashkari’s latest “campaign video”. He spends the entire time talking about his two dogs and how much they love slobbering all over young children.
Kashkari is falling behind two other Republican candidates for Governor of California.
According to the latest Field Poll regarding this year’s state Primary on June 3rd, 57 percent of likely voters back current Governor Jerry Brown (Democrat), 17 percent support Republican Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks (San Bernardino County), 4 percent favor Andrew Blount, the Republican mayor of Laguna Hills (Orange County), and 3 percent are for Kashkari.
Kashkari has been getting plenty of attention from television, newspapers and other media, but it so far hasn’t been enough even to pull him past the little-known Blount.
According to the poll, registered Republicans gravitate toward Donnelly and his pro-gun, anti-illegal immigration and pro-life views.

Last Thursday, KVML listeners were treated to a heated argument between talk show host Laura Ingraham (weekdays 3-6 PM) and Republican Congresswoman Renee Elmers of North Carolina.
Elmers slammed Ingraham for taking an “ignorant position” for opposing immigration reform. Ingraham appeared to have gotten under Elmers’ skin by repeatedly accusing her of spouting liberal talking points.
“I’m not going to take an ignorant position on this as you have on this issue,” Elmers said after explaining that farmers in North Carolina support reform.
“So it’s ignorant to follow the rule of law, to believe in an orderly process of immigration and to follow our sovereignty not our emotions?” Ingraham countered.
Elmers responded by telling Ingraham to get her “facts straight.”
“I have my facts straight, Congresswoman, believe me,” she fired back. “I’ve been working on this issue for about 10 years, and the American people are not with you. La Raza and Chuck Schumer are with you.”
As of this week, Elmers remains registered as a Republican and is running for re-election against a North Carolina “tea party” candidate.keep looking »
