He stated in an interview with GamesBeat he wishes to bring back peace of mind to Washington so we can reconstruct our economy to have a successful middle class, bring security to the nation and the border, and bring back the worths that result in strong households and strong neighborhoods.

“Politics has actually constantly been a type of pastime,” O’Donnell stated. “I simply do not truly like the poisonous departments that are occurring in our nation. I do not like any of that things. And I was sort of connecting to some regional individuals if there was some method I might assist. I got a lot of calls from individuals who asked if I would think about running for Congress.”

This remains in the “think it or not” classification of stories I’ve done over time. The last video game designer I discussed running for Congress was Brianna Wu, who ran for a seat in the 8th congressional district in Massachusetts in 2018. She lost. O’Donnell hopes his own popularity in video gaming will assist him and he believes his absence of experience in politics will be a benefit. O’Donnell acknowledges he hasn’t resided in Las Vegas for long, however he wants to have the ability to represent it well.

“We comprehend what it’s like out here and we enjoy Nevada. I like Las Vegas,” he stated. “I ‘d never ever believed I ‘d be stating that being from Chicago and Seattle. I’m really delighted with the weather condition here.”

I asked him if he supports Trump. He stated yes. That’s going to be a hot button.

“America delighted in a safe and secure border and no inflation in the Trump administration 4 years back,” O’Donnell stated. “I have actually chosen President Trump two times and will choose him a 3rd time this fall. No matter who is chosen this November, if I have the advantage to serve, I prepare to work with them. That’s what citizens anticipate which’s what I’ll do.”
