Curt Schilling says he may run for Congress in Arizona
PHOENIX (AP) — Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he’s thinking about running for Congress in Arizona.
Schilling confirmed in an email to The Arizona Republic on Monday that he’s considering a run. He declined to say which district he’d run in and wrote that “the illegal immigration issue is not a joke.”
He was later fired as an ESPN commentator for controversial online comments.
He’s an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, who tweeted, “Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific!”
Schilling has in the past floated a Senate run in Massachusetts.
