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, 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.
