PROVIDENCE – Former Boston Red Sox pitcher and failed video game entrepreneur Curt Schilling took his plan to the Facebook streets this past weekend to announce plans to enter the political arena, including an eventual run for president.
Boston.com reported Schilling’s political aspirations.
Schilling, of Medford, Mass., who won the World Series with the Red Sox in 2004 and 2007, said he wants to first run for state office, before running for president.
“I am going to run, soon,” Schilling wrote in a Facebook comment Aug. 7.
“[S]tate office first, White House in eight years,” he added, “or four if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another Clinton.”
Schilling’s failed 38 Studios LLC video game venture left taxpayers on the hook for a $75 million loan guarantee. Civil litigation is still pending. •
