Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling said Tuesday he will challenge Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018 — pending his wife's approval.
Schilling made the remark during a radio interview with WPRO.
"I've made my decision. I’m going to run," Schilling said, reports WPRI.com. "But — but — I haven't talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it's going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids."
Schilling has been critical of left-leaning politicians in recent years, including Hillary Clinton. He was even fired from his analyst job at ESPN in April after he posted a photo on Facebook that addressed transgender bathroom issues.
Schilling famously helped the Red Sox win the World Series in 2004, their first title in 86 years.
"I'm not worried — it doesn't scare me," he said Tuesday of debating Warren. "Listen, I was a part of the team that came back to beat the Indians from being down three games to one — I've beaten the real ones before. So I'm not worried about that."
Last month, Schilling addressed Clinton during an interview with Fox News.
"She's hurt in every possibly way she can," Schilling said. "I think she's the epitome of just a very bad, bad, evil human being."
