The legendary and should be hall of fame pitcher Curt Schilling announced he is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Schilling is a staunch Conservative and pro-Trumper who could win a congressional seat with his huge name recognition.
Schilling made this announcement in an email he wrote to the paper ‘The Arizona Republic.
Schilling stated, “If/When things solidify I will but right now it’s something in the ‘I’m considering it’ stage. The state is not the state I grew up in. Making Arizona citizens of EVERY race, religion and sexual orientation 2nd class citizens to illegal immigrants is about as anti-American as it gets.”
Schilling continued, “When you have homeless veterans, children, and you’re spending tax dollars on people smuggling drugs and children across our border someone in charge needs their a** kicked.”
Schilling said, “I haven’t said anything publicly, but I’m considering going back to Arizona and running for a congressional seat, one of the blue ones. It’s something that my wife and I have talked about, and she’s now becoming more and more pumped at the potential. Obviously, we’re still quite a few discussions away, but yeah, it’s something we’re absolutely considering.”
President Trump announced his support for Curt Schilling to run for Congress.
Trump tweeted, “Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific! @foxandfriends”
