Curt Schilling considers Senate run against Warren

SALEM, N.H. (WHDH) - Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said he plans on running against Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018.

Schilling first made the announcement Tuesday morning but back in August said he would like to get Warren out of politics. He said he will campaign for Warren’s Senate seat if his wife and children approve.

“I’ve already made the decision,” said Schilling. “I want to do it. But I need my family all in. I won’t begrudgingly walk away from this. If my family is not, I’m not in.”

Warren has not commented yet on Schilling’s Senate plans. Attorney General Maura Healey has weighed in, calling Schilling “TrumpLite” on Twitter.

Schilling visited three Donald Trump campaign offices in New Hampshire Tuesday. While at the office in Salem, he said again that a possible Senate run would come down to his family.

“My family already committed 20 years of their lives, especially my wife, to my baseball career, which was 24-7, 365. And that to me, if it’s enough, it’s enough. Because again, this would not be just me.”
