Former baseball player and all-around white supremacist Curt Schilling confirmed he is considering a run against one of the state's 5 Democratic Representatives.

"When you have homeless veterans, children, and you're spending tax dollars on people smuggling drugs and children across our border someone in charge needs their ass kicked."
