Cam earned a B.A. magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania (international relations major), a master’s degree (with merit) in Philosophy, Policy, and Social Value from the London School of Economics, and a J.D. from Georgetown Law.
Cam lives in Minneapolis and is married to Emily Pryor Winton. Cam and Emily are the proud parents of a daughter born in 2010, and son born in 2012.
Cam is active in public affairs:
- He's the Republican precinct captain for Minneapolis Ward 13, Precinct 4, which is the northern half of the Fulton neighborhood in Southwest Minneapolis.
- Cam encourages the governments of Minneapolis and Minnesota to live within their means rather than try to tax and spend their way to prosperity: first letter, second letter, third letter.
- While in college, Cam wrote an op-ed urging students to vote for the GOP candidate for Philadelphia mayor.
Cam's also been involved in two efforts that didn’t turn out the way he would have hoped:
- He founded a charity in Zimbabwe that he had to shut down when conditions there turned too unstable. See The Kids of Cam Winton in the Penn Gazette for details.
- And he served as the treasurer of a good friend’s campaign for U.S. Congress in which — after pulling off an upset in the party endorsement process — they lost the general election.
But as they say, you learn more from your failures than you do from your successes, and Cam is proud of his work on those projects.
