Curt Schilling says he’s “made [his] decision” about whether or not to run for Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s seat: He’s in.
He just needs to clear it his wife first.
The former World Series Red Sox champion made the remarks during a radio interview that was transcribed by WPRI reporter Ted Nesi.
“So I’ve made my decision. I’m going to run,” Schilling said. “But, but I haven’t talked to Shonda, my wife. And ultimately it’s going to come down to how her and I feel this would affect our marriage and our kids.”
Schilling appeared on WPRO’s John DePetro program and fielded call-in questions from Rhode Islanders for the first time about the collapse of his video-game company, 38 Studios. The firm’s bankruptcy after two years of operation left taxpayers with a bill of about $90 million.
Shonda Schilling later called in to the radio station, but said she still hadn’t decided whether her husband should run.
If he does run, he may have an uphill battle: A WBUR poll last month found Massachusetts voters favored Warren over Schilling 54 percent to 29 percent, respectively, in a hypothetical matchup.
