Mailer Hits Donnelly, Praises Kashkari

Previous posts described slate mailers in the 2014 California gubernatorial race.  Now we are seeing single-candidate mailers. At The Los Angeles Times, Seema Mehta reports:
Major Republican donor Charles Munger Jr. has contributed $350,000 to a new independent committee he formed to boost GOP gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari, a reflection of establishment Republicans’ growing concern about his bid.

The move brings the total being spent by others on the candidate’s behalf to more than $650,000, according to records filed with the secretary of state’s office.

The new group, called Californians for Kashkari for Governor 2014, has raised a total of $415,000, including $50,000 from billionaire investment fund founder Robert Day. The organization, which by law cannot coordinate its efforts with the candidate, was formed Monday and has already reported spending more than $170,000 on mailers.
Here is one of those mailers (click images to enlarge).
