Former Major League Baseball star Curt Schilling announced his intention to begin a career in politics with the eventual goal of running for president.
On Sunday, Schilling posted an article to Facebook about the "fraudulent" Democratic Party. When the idea of him running for elected office was brought up in the comments section, he said, "I am going to run, soon."
He went on to say that he plans on running for state office first and then president in eight years, "or 4 if by some amazing illegal event this country elects another clinton."
Schilling doubled down on his plans Monday, replying to a comment on Twitter that he will run in Massachusetts before setting his sights on the presidency.
State position here in Mass most likely, to start— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) August 8, 2016
The retired pitcher has been very vocal about his disdain for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and her party in general.
Schilling got himself in some political hot water in April for tweeting a meme criticizing transgender people, which led ESPN, where he worked as an analyst, to fire him.
