Trump Welcomes Possible Curt Schilling Run for Congress

President Trump tweeted out his support for a congressional run from former MLB legend Curt Schilling.

Curt Schilling announced he was strongly considering a run for Congress in Arizona.

According to Fox News:

President Trump touted former pitcher Curt Schilling on Tuesday after he announced he was “absolutely considering” running for Congress as a Republican in Arizona.

“Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific!” Trump tweeted.


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.
