Curt Schilling considering challenging for Elizabeth Warren’s Senate seat
Six-time All-Star, three-time World Series champion, former ESPN analyst, United States senator?
Outspoken former pitcher Curt Schilling, who recently hinted at running for political office, now appears to be zeroing in on the Senate seat in Massachusetts currently occupied by Democrat Elizabeth Warren.
“I would like to be one of the people responsible for getting Elizabeth Warren out of politics,” said Schilling in an interview with Boston radio station WRKO-AM on Monday. “She’s a nightmare. The left’s holding her up as the second coming of Hillary Clinton, Lord knows we don’t need the first.”
Talk about two polar opposites on the ideological spectrum.
Warren, who is up for re-election in 2018, is known as one of the leading progressive voices in the Senate. Meanwhile, Schilling has been rather vocal about his right-wing political views over the years and recently made some disparaging comments about Clinton before being fired from ESPN for sharing an anti-transgender image on social media.
The 49-year-old Schilling, who doesn’t seem to think that Donald Trump is the answer either, clearly feels that he may need to take the country’s leadership into his own hands. It remains to be seen if the electorate shares the same sentiment.
