California governor wins primary in race highlighting Republican woes

California Governor Brown walks onstage to speak at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los AngelesBy Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) – Democratic California Governor Jerry Brown, seeking an unprecedented fourth term, beat out his nearest Republican competitor by more than 35 percentage points in Tuesday’s primary in a race that highlights the shaky state of the Republican Party in the most populous U.S. state. The leading Republican was Neel Kashkari, a former Wall Street financier who helped run the federal government’s bank bailout program during the financial meltdown. He put $2 million of his own money into his campaign and ended up squeaking past Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, an anti-illegal immigration activist and Tea Party favorite, to earn a chance to face Brown in November. Democrats hold all statewide elective offices in California, and dominate both houses of the state legislature.
