Curt Schilling Mulling A Run For Kennedy’s Senate Seat

This could make things very interesting.

Curt Schilling, best known for his bloody-sock pitching heroics, may step up to the plate and run for U.S. Senate.

The retired Red Sox [team stats] ace said today on his blog and during a telephone interview with NECN that even though his “plate is full,” he’s been contacted to consider a run for the open seat held by the late Edward M. Kennedy. A Jan. 19 special election has been set by the governor to fill the post.Schilling Retires Baseball

Schilling, a Republican who stumped for John McCain in the New Hampshire presidential primary last year, said he’s a reluctant possible candidate.

“You’d have to make a decision pretty quickly. Let’s just leave it with that,” Schilling said to NECN.

“I think it’s going to take the right candidate. … There needs to be an enormous amount of house cleaning done,” he added, saying that sentiment would probably cost him deeply.

Charlie Gibson will need to retire to the fainting couch if Schilling goes all in.

  1. I don’t think any Republican could get in from Mass. but if you are going to go down – go down with your best candidate. I always loved Schilling’s candor and when he said that A-Rod acted like a bush leaguer when he tried to slap the ball out of Bronson Arroyo’s glove in Game 6 of the ALCS in 2004 – he was right!

    One more Schilling memory to share – I was at game 4 of the 2001 World Series at Yankee Stadium and I will never forget the sight of Curt Schilling strolling in from the bullpen before the start of the game after his warmups, with the song “We Will Rock You” (classy Yankees) blasting in the back ground and he acted as if he did not have a care in the world.
