'Terrific!': Trump hails potential congressional run by Curt Schilling

Former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling confirmed he is considering a House run to oust one of the five Democrats representing Arizona.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to endorse a potential congressional bid by former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling in Arizona.

Terrific!” Trump tweeted, roughly 45 minutes after a “Fox & Friends” segment about Schilling’s potential campaign.

Schilling captured World Series championships with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2001 and with the Boston Red Sox in 2004.

He said former Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton “should be buried under a jail somewhere” in March 2016, and was fired from ESPN in April 2016 from his role as a baseball analyst after sharing an anti-transgender meme on Facebook.

Schilling also promoted a T-shirt advocating for journalists to be hanged from trees in November 2016, and reached a $2.5 million settlement with the Rhode Island Commerce Corp. in September 2016 after the state sued his failed video game company.
