Camal Pennington is knocking a lot of doors lately. It’s because he is running in a primary race within the Democratic Party for the Oklahoma House District 97 seat on the east side of Oklahoma City. And he is running against another native of the east side who also has deep roots, and is well-known in the community.
In this episode, he closes out a long day of first working for the American Federation of Teachers as a field rep, and then knocking doors in the evening until it was dark. We talk about a key decision that could have thrown him into deep ruin, but instead became the foundation for most of his accomplishments today.
