Her opponents tried to make her love of video games into a bad thing. The attempt failed spectacularly and Maine Democrat Colleen Lachowicz now has a seat in the U.S. Senate. Fruzsina Eördögh shares the inspiring story with you at ReadWrite Play.
Luddites take note: Attacking a candidate just because they play video games will not only backfire in the form of bad international press and an outpouring of support from fellow gamers, but the move also paints you as incredibly out of touch with modern society.
