Gubernatorial candidate goes homeless to prove point

Very interesting campaign issue to take up for Neel Kashkari, who is running for Governor of California, against the incumbent Jerry Brown. In a country where the GOP is known for its general support for Wall Street, it is rare to find an Republican making a large part of his/her campaign about the homeless. Unfortunately for Kashkari, not only is Governor Brown very popular in California, he also has had proven results over the last 4 years that the those of us who live in the state won’t forget, given the hole we had to dig out of. Despite that, fighting for the homeless is very commendable for any candidate, assuming it is genuine.
