SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Former U.S. Treasury official Neel Kashkari is contributing another $1 million of his own money to his campaign for California governor.

The Republican candidate reported the contribution late Friday, bringing his personal contributions to more than $3 million for the primary and general election.

Poll results are no longer available.

Kashkari reported that he had just $680,000 in the bank as of Sept. 30 and has since raised another $400,000. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has nearly $30 million in two campaign accounts he controls - one for his gubernatorial campaign and one for two ballot initiatives he is promoting.

Kashkari had pegged his net worth at less than $5 million before the campaign.

His campaign spokeswoman, Mary-Sarah Kinner, says fighting for poor and minority children in California "is just that important to Neel."
