WASHINGTON: In a major boost to Indian- American Neel Kashkari's bid to become California's governor, ex-Florida governor Jeb Bush and former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney endorsed him for the job.

"Today, I'm proud to endorse Neel Kashkari, a bold conservative Republican leader, as California's next governor ...From his time in the private sector to his time in public service, Neel has demonstrated a unique ability to bring people together to achieve success in challenging circumstances," Bush, a possible strong presidential contender in 2016, said in a statement.

Also endorsing Kashkari, Romney said, "Democrats' big-government policies have hurt the middle class and reduced opportunity for Americans across the country, and that's the reason it's so important to elect leaders like Neel Kashkari who understand how to jumpstart the private sector, fix our schools and get people working again."

The endorsements by Bush, brother of former U.S. president George Bush and the son of another ex-U.S. president George H W Bush, and Romney came as a shot in the arm for the Republican Indian-American.

Kashkari is slated to give a tough fight in the November elections in one of the strongest Democratic bastions. In his endorsement, Jeb Bush described Kashkari as a principled man of action and not someone who simply leads from behind.

"Fixing California is no small task, but Neel Kashkari has the vision and the drive to reject the status quo and usher in a new era of opportunity for the state's families and communities," Jeb Bush said.
