Congressional candidate Tiffany Shedd picked up the endorsement of former U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, while at the same time trying to discourage former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Curt Schilling from entering the race.

“I’m not sure why Curt Schilling would think about running in (Arizona’s 1st Congressional District),” Shedd said. “He was a great pitcher for the Diamondbacks over a decade ago, but he’s been living in Massachusetts, and has never lived in Arizona 1.”

Schilling, a prominent conservative from the sports world, has said he is weighing a run as a Republican against two-term U.S. Rep. Tom O’Halleran, D-Ariz. President Donald Trump offered Schilling an encouraging tweet about the possible run earlier this month.

Kyl, who retired from the Senate for the second time in January, on Friday lauded Shedd’s farming background in urging Republicans to support her. He also endorsed Shedd, who is a lawyer and cotton farmer, during her unsuccessful 2018 run in the 1st District.
