The state assemblyman from the San Bernardino Mountains community of Twin Peaks said Thursday that he expects to get through the June primary with strong support from the party's conservative base.

Donnelly, a Tea Party favorite and former minuteman border vigilante, is a strong gun rights supporter and social conservative.

Responding to questions about his electability, Donnelly criticized the Republican establishment for supporting candidates he described as safe, moderate and wealthy.

Donnelly's opponent, Neel Kashkari, is a former Goldman Sachs employee and U.S. Treasury official. The party's 2010 gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman, was a billionaire. Both focused their campaigns on fiscal issues and education.
