iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) — Neel Kashkari, the GOP candidate for governor of California, reportedly lived a week as a homeless person to gain some traction for his campaign.

Kashkari says he took a bus from Los Angeles to Fresno with $40 in his pocket. He says he slept on park benches and ate at a homeless shelter.

The Republican candidate is 19 points back in the polls to Democratic incumbent Jerry Brown. Kashkari says he did it all to disprove Brown’s claim that California is making a comeback.
