Neel Kashkari reported Thursday that he held less than $1 million entering the final two weeks before Election Day.

The Republican candidate for governor reported raising $1.4 million from Oct. 1-18 and spending $1.2 million. He was left with $841,714 in cash on hand.

The report includes $1 million of personal money Kashkari put into his campaign Friday. Kashkari, who spent about $2 million of his own money in the primary election, declined this week to say if he will pour more into the race.

Brown reported earlier Thursday that he spent about $3.4 million from Oct. 1-18, nearly all of it for advertising for Propositions 1 and 2, the $7.5 billion water bond and budget reserve measure on the Nov. 4 ballot.

The Democratic governor was left with about $21 million on hand.
