None of two Republican candidates suitable against Governor Brown

None of two Republican candidates, Neel Kashkari and Tim Donnelly, stands much of a chance to win against California's incumbent Governor Jerry Brown, who is running for a fourth consecutive term.

Prior to his ongoing third term, Mr. Brown served the state as governor twice in the 1970s and 1980s.

Kashkari, the former boss of TARP, is battling Tea Party favorite Tim Donnelly for second place in the Golden State's open primary Tuesday. The winner of the two will get an opportunity to try his luck against Governor Brown this fall.

But a recent poll showed that 50 per cent of likely voters will vote for Mr. Brown in the open primary, while Kashkari and Donnelly will be supported by 18 per cent and 13 per cent of the likely voters, respectively.

However, analysts have predicted that Kashkari is actually playing for the top position for the next gubernatorial election, which will be held in 2018. While Kashkari will be more seasoned by then, Mr. Brown will be 80, and barred from running again for the position.

Meanwhile residents of two Californian counties, Del Norte and Tehama, are all set to vote on whether to join three other counties to create a new state by separating from the current state, to be named Jefferson.
