Washington Senate Candidate Wants Video Game Regulations

"Open Mike" would like to shut down video game violence.

Republican Mike McGavick, running for a United States Senate seat from the State of Washington, is said to favor government regulation of media content in video games, T.V. and films.

According to the Anacortes American, McGavick "is appalled by violence on television and in video games, and is tired of waiting for Hollywood to regulate itself."

The candidate is the former CEO of Seattle-based SafeCo. McGavick's opponent is incumbent Democrat Maria Cantwell. The State of Washington is home to a large slice of the video game industry, including Microsoft, Nintendo, Valve and others.
