Hour after hour after hour, Neel Kashkari is on the air

by - July 15, 2014

For three hours Thursday night, Kashkari lambasted Gov. Jerry Brown on high-speed rail, education and the economy, leaning into the microphone and gesticulating from the front edge of his chair. The totality of the effort – 13 hours over several weeks taking calls, throwing to traffic, introducing guest after guest as his “friend” or “good friend” – is unusual in a state where TV ads are king and candidates typically measure their public appearances to avoid rhetorical mistakes. For Kashkari, the full-on embrace of talk radio is a reminder how little money he has for paid advertising and how limited his outlets for exposure are. Yet it also suggests a benefit of modest expectations: Brown, a popular third-term Democrat, would be favored to beat nearly any opponent the Republican Party could muster in this Democratic-leaning state. Running against him, Kashkari has little to lose.
