Outspoken conservative and former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling says he is “serious” about challenging Democrat Elizabeth Warren for her Senate seat in 2018.
“I’m serious about it,” he told Neil Cavuto on Fox News on Friday.
It’s not the first time Schilling has hinted at political aspirations or challenging Warren.
The former All-Star is no stranger to political controversy, either.
On Fox, he didn’t hold back, calling Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “the epitome of a very bad, bad evil human being.”
“She has nothing to stand on, achievement-wise,” he said.
He was also critical of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests,suggesting crime statistics don’t back up his outrage.
“He’s kneeling for a false narrative,” said Schilling. “He’s kneeling for a lie.”
Asked about transgender bathroom laws, Schilling was equally as punchy.
“The federal government doesn’t belong in the bathroom,” he said.
