Neel Kashkari poses as a homeless man in campaign video filmed in Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. -- A new video project California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari put together in Fresno.

Kashkari says he recently spent a week living as a homeless person on the streets of Fresno. The film is called "Is California back?"

Kashkari says he started with $40, and the goal of landing a job. The multimillionaire says he was trying to highlight the problem of poverty in California and the everyday struggles people face -- such as finding something to eat, or a warm place to sleep.

You can watch the full video of Kashkari's homeless project in Fresno at his campaign website (or watch the video below). He is expected make an official announcement about it Thursday morning.
