Former Red Sox pitcher, failed video game entrepreneur and conservative political commentator Curt Schilling is considering running against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in 2018. "I've made my decision," he said, according to Ted Nesi of WPRI. "I'm going to run. But — but — I haven't talked to Shonda, my wife. … Ultimately, it's going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids." Schilling first floated the notion of challenging Warren during a radio appearance in August.
I would like to be one of the people responsible for getting Elizabeth Warren out of politics. I think she's a nightmare.Schilling on WRKO in Boston
Schilling, a supporter of Donald Trump, stirred controversy recently when he defended the Republican nominee after a recent video showed Trump apparently remarking that he'd be dating a young girl "in 10 years." Schilling was fired by his previous employer, ESPN, where he served as an analyst, after sharing a Facebook post featuring a man dressed as a woman and commenting that "a man is a man no matter what they call themselves." He shared the post to express his support for laws prohibiting transgender individuals from using the bathroom of their choice. Schilling later said ESPN employed "some of the biggest racists" on air.
