Brown, Kashkari Make Their Case

Governor Jerry Brown and opponent Neil Kashkari have one week to convince voters why they are the right choice for California. ATVN's Marc Sallinger has the story. 

With midterm elections only a week away, California’s Democratic governor, Jerry Brown, and his opponent Neel Kashkari campaigned in the Los Angeles area today.

For Governor Brown, the environment is a top priority. He says he’ll save California by conserving water and money for the next four years. Brown asked voters to consider his accomplishments thus far.

“Look a little further into all the bills we’ve passed,” said Brown. “Look at what our regulatory agencies are doing. Yes on 1, Yes on 2. Save water, save money.” 

A political poll released in September said Brown is estimated to have 57% of the votes. 

In front of a crowd in Pasadena, Kashkari said he still believes he is the right choice for California.

Neel Kashkari is the former Treasury Department Executive under George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

If elected, Kashkari says education reform is his top priority. 

“Too many California kids are stuck in failing schools,” said Kashkari. “So for the last few weeks of the election, I just want to make a focus on education. Jerry Brown had a very clear choice; stand up and fight for kids or fight for the unions. He betrayed the kids and is backing the unions, and he should be ashamed of himself.” 

Governor Brown and Kashkari have a mere six days to convince voters one last time that they will be the best choice for the Governor of California.
