NEW YORK — Curt Schilling won’t test out just how popular he is in Massachusetts.
The former Boston Red Sox pitcher, beloved in the state for his starring role in ending an 86-year championship drought, announced Tuesday he isn’t running for Edward M. Kennedy’s seat in the U.S. Senate.
Earlier this month, Schilling expressed interest in pursuing the post held by the Massachusetts Democrat for almost 50 years before he died in August. But appearing on "Joe Buck Live" on HBO on Tuesday night, Schilling quashed the notion.
"Regardless of the amount of support and outreach that’s been given to me, it just did not make sense," he said.
It would have been entertaining, if nothing else.
