Curt Schilling considers challenging Elizabeth Warren

Former Red Sox pitcher and outspoken conservative Curt Schilling is considering running for Senate in Massachusetts to challenge Elizabeth Warren’s reelection bid in 2018. 

{mosads}Just last week, Schilling commented on his own Facebook post that he is “going to run, soon,” adding that he is considering running for a state office in Massachusetts and eventually a presidential run, in 2024. 

In an interview on Monday with Boston-based WRKO’s “The Kuhner Report,” highlighted by CNN, Schilling went into more detail about his political aspirations. 

“I thought about it, and one of the things I would like to do is be one of the people responsible for getting Elizabeth Warren out of politics,” he said. “I think she’s a nightmare. The left is holding her up as the second coming of Hillary Clinton, but Lord knows we don’t need the first one.”

Schilling also said that he was considering a political career “simply because I’ve never been somebody to sit around talking about getting stuff done without actually trying to help.”

The Boston sports hero who previously backed Donald Trump for president was an analyst at ESPN until he was fired for a controversial Facebook post about North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law. 

Schilling said he still hasn’t made a final decision about whether to challenge Warren.

“And the end of the day it comes down to a conversation with the boss. The boss in my house is my wife,” he said.
