Former WWE wrestler Daniel Rodimer, also known as Dan Rodman, told Fox News on Thursday he hopes to work with President Donald Trump if he wins a seat in Congress next year.
“Honestly, I don’t know what Congress is like, so I’m not there yet, but when I do get to Congress, I look forward to it – I can’t wait to work with our great president,” Rodimer told “Fox & Friends,” in an interview Thursday. Rodimer is running for Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District’s seat, currently held by Rep. Susie Lee, D-Nev.
“She voted 98% with AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.], so I mean she’s pretty far left and even the Democrats are not big fans over it,” Rodimer added.
Rodimer retired from pro-wrestling in 2007, after several years with the WWE. He later attended Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida. He unsuccessfully ran for Nevada state Senate as a Republican in 2018, losing the primary despite outraising and outspending his opponent for the GOP nomination, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“When I was in the WWE, I wasn’t the best wrestler, but I was great on the microphone and Vince McMahon would tell me, ‘Go out there and do a two-minute promo on an eight-minute match,’ and I would go out there and do an eight-minute promo and a two-minute match,” Rodimer told Fox News on Thursday.
