Pennington makes campaign stop in Pooler

Posted: Updated:

A republican candidate for governor made a stop in the area Friday afternoon.

David Pennington made a campaign stop at Spanky's restaurant in Pooler.

Even though no Georgia governor has ever lost re-election to someone within his own party , Pennington said his experience at a local level gives him a leg up.

"The state's just a bigger playground to play in and so I assure you when it comes to cutting wasteful spending I'll be like a kid in a candy store," he said.

Pennington's next campaign stop is Dalton, where he is the current mayor.
