Gubernatorial Candidate Neel Kashkari is getting a lot of press and attention following his adventure living as a homeless person in Fresno. Starting with just $40 in his pocket, he spent five days travelling around the city looking for work, sleeping in parking lots and on benches and eating from food banks. Kashkari’s intention was to show that California’s economy “not back” and to highlight the poverty that exists in the state.
“Kashkari’s little campaign did have a little bit of Republican collateral damage,” pointed out Morning Answer co-host Ben Shapiro. “Ashley Swearengin, who is the mayor of Fresno and is running for Secretary of State in California, she’s really ticked off because it’s her city and he was sitting around on the streets there saying he couldn’t get a job and he said he was rousted by police officers a bunch…she’s kind of ticked about it because it shows that not everything is going go swimmingly in her city and of course, that’s true… a lot of that is due to the fact that the California state economy is trash and despite all of the talk of…Jerry Brown solving our economic crisis.”
