Curt Schilling announces plans to challenge Elizabeth Warren for Senate seat


Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling announced on a radio show Tuesday morning that he is planning to run for a U.S. Senate seat against Elizabeth Warren , but there's still a chance that he'll back out.

Schilling told WPRO in an interview Tuesday morning that he still needs his wife's approval, but has decided to challenge Warren for her Senate seat.

"I've made my decision. I'm going to run," Schilling said on WPRO. "But I haven't talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it's going to come down to how (she) and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids."

"If my family wasn't comfortable and OK with it, it would never happen," he said.

Schilling told WFXT in August that he'd been considering a run against Warren. The retired Red Sox pitcher called the senator a "nightmare" and said he would like to be one of the people responsible for getting her out of politics. 

But even then he said he had to clear the idea with his wife. 

Schilling has floated the idea of running for the Senate in the past, before nixing the idea and endorsing Scott Brown, who eventually lost the seat to Warren.

Schilling, a known conservative, was fired from his job as an ESPN baseball analyst earlier this year after comments on Facebook that were critical of transgender rights.
