In a political world where anything seems possible, former Boston Red Sox pitcher (and outspoken conservative) Curt Schilling says he’s planning to run for president.
During a Facebook chat on Sunday, the Red Sox great told a fan that he’s looking to pursue the White House in 2024. (Undoubtedly, he hopes, following a two-term Donald Trump presidency.)
Schilling is not planning to take the same route to power as The Donald, however. He said that he’s planning to win election to the Massachusetts state house first, then make the leap to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The pitcher, who was fired from his job as an ESPN baseball analyst over an anti-trans Facebook post, confirmed his political plans in a tweet on Monday.
