Curt Schilling played for the Boston Red Sox but he is originally from Arizona.
He is also a conservative Republican and is now considering a run for Congress. He would be great.
Former Red Sox Icon Considering Congressional Run In Arizona
Curt Schilling, a hero to many in New England for his historic 2004 MLB playoff performance and his two World Series victories for the city of Boston, announced Wednesday via the Arizona Republic that he is seriously considering running for Congress.
Schilling, who also won the World Series in 2001 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, told the paper that “If/When things solidify I will but right now it’s something in the ‘I’m considering it’ stage.”
Schilling added, “The state is not the state I grew up in. Making Arizona citizens of EVERY race, religion and sexual orientation 2nd class citizens to illegal immigrants is about as anti-American as it gets.”
“When you have homeless veterans, children, and you’re spending tax dollars on people smuggling drugs and children across our border someone in charge needs their a** kicked,” he noted.
Schilling currently is a resident of Massachusetts but confirmed to the paper he would move back to Arizona to run for office, if he decides to do so.
Trump apparently likes the idea:

I want to see legislation introduced that requires every single govt funded program be assigned irs auditors. They are made responsible for every dollar of money given away. I’d also vote for someone who introduced same legislation to go back a decade and do the same.

Been asking this for a long time. Why are people fleeing another failed socialist country, which apparently almost kills them, to come here and make this country like the shit hole they fled?

It sounds like he gets it.
