When asked point-blank if he was launching a campaign for Congress, Schilling told the paper he was “not ready to do any of that right now.”
“If/When things solidify I will but right now it’s something in the ‘I’m considering it’ stage,” Schilling wrote in an email to the paper. “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 is a Massachusetts resident but will move back to his home state to run for Congress. Schilling has been seemingly kept out of the hall of fame for voicing his conservative opinions.
