A day after Curt Schilling said he is pondering a Senate run in 2018, the former Boston Red Sox pitcher called his potential future opponent "a toothless politician."
During an interview on Fox Business Network Wednesday, host Neil Cavuto asked Schilling about this tweet posted by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren:
Schilling didn't hold back in his answer.
"I think that's typical Liz Warren," Schilling said. "You talk about a toothless politician. She's the epitome of a tax-and-spend liberal."
Schilling said Tuesday he's thinking about challenging Warren for her Senate seat in 2018, but only if his family is on board with the idea. He told Cavuto it will ultimately be a family decision whether or not he registers to run for office.
"I said that in my mind, I want to make the move but it's absolutely, unequivocally a family decision," Schilling said. "Given the last year or two, we've come to understand that the families of conservative candidates are media fodder now.
"They're targets. They're on the table. For me to do this, it would have to be without my family being tepid or timid to do it."
Schilling added his family has not had that "serious conversation" about his aspirations for public office.
