Curt Schilling is a World Series MVP, a six-time All-Star and a 216-game winner. One day, he'll be in the Hall of Fame. Still, he's no match for Massachusetts election law, as Politico notes:
Former Red Sox pitching ace Curt Schilling may be making noises about running for the Senate to succeed the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) but, according to Massachusetts election law, he's ineligible to run as a Republican.
Schilling told the New England Cable Network yesterday that he has been contacted by people looking to recruit him into the race and hadn't ruled out the possibility.
But Schilling, who has enthusiastically campaigned for former President Bush and John McCain in past presidential elections, has said that he's a registered Independent voter. Massachusetts election law requires that anyone seeking a party nomination to be enrolled with the party for at least 90 days before the Nov. 3 deadline for filing nomination papers with the state Elections Division.
