Former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Curt Schilling watches the first inning of a baseball game between the Diamondbacks and the San Francisco Giants on Aug. 3, 2018, in Phoenix.

“Am I going to run? I don’t know yet. I honestly don’t know yet. It’s still an ongoing discussion in our home,” Schilling said during a laid-back, 90-minute session in which he mostly worked on a paint-by-number drawing of a military craft while occasionally gazing at questions from fans.

For his part, O’Halleran, who is in his second term in the House of Representatives, said he isn’t especially worried about the former baseball player jumping into the race.

“He has some pretty far-right issues concerning a number of different areas, and he hasn’t ever been involved in public policy, and he has some issues coming from the East Coast that he would have to bring with him,” O’Halleran said. “Other than that, he has name recognition in Arizona from a number of years ago, but people still remember him. 

“If I were in a primary with him, I’d probably be a little more worried about him than I would be in a general election,” O’Halleran said.
