Once again threatens to run for office

Curt Schilling, former major-league pitcher and World Series hero who squandered away so much goodwill that the Red Sox no longer want anything to do with him, has for the umpteenth time floated the idea of running for office. What makes this time different is that Donald Trump gave him a signal boost.
Schilling has repeatedly threatened to run for Senate in Massachusetts, and in 2016 talked about unseating Elizabeth Warren. (Huh, what ever happened to her?) He’s never actually followed through with this threat, though, because he has no support and nobody likes him.
The reason Trump tweeted his support was because he saw it on Fox News, but also, Schilling is now focusing his sights on a crazier state. According to The Arizona Republic, the former Diamondbacks pitcher discussed it on a radio show Sunday, and when the outlet asked him for comment, he used his usual excuse: He’s looking into it, but his wife Shonda would have to sign off on anything serious.
