Schilling Campaigns for McCain

Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling campaigned with John McCain on Wednesday night.

At a Manchester town hall forum, Schilling said he decided to endorse the Arizona Senator because “elections seem to be going to a place where we vote for the one we hate the least.”

“I’m tired of hearing politicians speak in the broadest terms possible,” the Sox pitcher added.

One voter asked Schilling if he was going to run against Democratic Senator John Kerry in 2008.

“You know what I’m going to stuck with winning one more World Series” he told the crowd at Manchester’s Derryfield School.

Schilling also took a question from a man dressed in a snowman costume. The snowman asked Schilling what he was doing to eliminate global warming.

Schilling admitted “I would not be the expert to talk about this,” but added “the next time I see a politician talk about global warming and then hop into a Hummer I’m going to throw-up.”

In a press conference with reporters, Schilling was asked why he was not supporting Rudy Giuliani. The former New York City Mayor previously said he was rooting for the Boston Red Sox to win the 2007 World Series.

"That's a status quo of the flip flopping thing that happens across a lot of party lines," he said.
