Schilling eyes Se­nate race against War­ren

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS - By Jennifer McDer­mott

For­mer Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling an­nounced plans to run against El­iz­a­beth War­ren for the U.S. Se­nate if his wife agrees. Schilling is a self-de­scribed con­ser­va­tive and Don­ald Trump sup­porter.

For­mer Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling an­nounced plans on Tues­day to run against El­iz­a­beth War­ren in the U.S. Se­nate if his wife agrees, but he de­clined to apol­o­gize to Rhode Is­land tax­pay­ers left on the hook for tens of mil­lions of dol­lars when his video game com­pany col­lapsed.

Schilling spoke Tues­day with WPRO-AM, his first in­ter­view about 38 Stu­dios since set­tling a law­suit over it and since a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion re­sulted in no charges.

Demo­cratic Gov. Gina Rai­mondo has said Rhode Is­land res­i­dents were hurt by the bad deal and de­serve an apol­ogy.

Schilling said it’s not that he won’t apol­o­gize, but he wants Rai­mondo to tell him what he should apol­o­gize for. He asked lis­ten­ers: “What do you want me to apol­o­gize for?”

The com­pany moved from Mas­sachusetts to Rhode Is­land in 2010 in ex­change for a $75 mil­lion loan guar­an­tee, then went bank­rupt less than two years later.

Schilling said his com­pany failed be­cause it didn’t raise enough money, not be­cause he did any­thing ma­li­cious or il­le­gal, and that he has apol­o­gized to his for­mer em­ploy­ees.
