Former Red Sox Pitcher Curt Schilling Mulling a Run for Elizabeth Warren's Seat

Schilling says there's a 50 percent chance he will run in 2018.

— -- Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling says there is a 50-50 chance he will run in 2018 for the Massachusetts U.S. Senate seat now held by Elizabeth Warren.

But he says the decision is not his alone.

“It’s a family decision. I think I have come to realize more so than ever during this election cycle that conservative families are fodder, they are game for the media, so it is something that would have to be discussed and agreed to internally because of what they would be getting exposed to,” the former right-handed pitcher said.

“There are so many variables," he continued. "Let’s put it this way. I am talking to all the people I would need to be talking to to get a campaign started underway and moving were that to be the decision.”

Schilling, who recently started a radio show on Breitbart News, told ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl and political director Rick Klein on today’s Powerhouse Politics Podcast that Sen. Warren will fail to achieve one of her signature issues -- for debt-free college -- and that she has accomplished nothing as senator.

“She has done nothing. Absolutely, unequivocally nothing. She wants free college which is absolutely, and again, unequivocally, it’s not possible, not on a statewide scale and not on a national scale,” he said.

Schilling also discussed Warren's recent speech declaring that “nasty women” will vote against Donald Trump, which she made after the GOP presidential nominee called his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" at the last debate.

“The shrillness of that voice, it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard just listening to her raise her voice,” Schilling said of Warren.

Schilling said that he is no supporter of the current Republican leaders on Capitol Hill. As for Speaker Paul Ryan, he said, “ I think he has committed political suicide in a lot of different ways and at the end of the day I think he is spineless.”

Asked if would support Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky as Senate Majority Leader if Republicans keep control of that body, Schilling said: “No, I think a lot of them need to go. I am a firm believer in term limits. I think lack of term limits is one of the reasons we are where we are.”

Karl and Klein also asked the former pitcher about another national issue -- the World Series, which is pitting the Chicago Cubs against the Cleveland Indians.

Schilling said he isn't rooting for one team over the other but hopes the series goes to seven games. Still, he said, if he were “betting a billion dollars, Cubs.“
