BOSTON (AP) -- Former Boston Red Sox baseball pitcher Curt Schilling says he has "some interest" in running for the late Edward M. Kennedy's Senate seat.
The longtime Republican supporter wrote Wednesday on his blog that while his family and gaming company are priorities, he does have some interest in a campaign.
He says doing the required work to become a candidate would mean "many, many things would have to align themselves."
Kennedy was a Democrat representing an overwhelmingly Democratic state. Schilling lives in suburban Boston and is a registered independent. He campaigned for President George W. Bush in 2004 and Sen. John McCain in 2008.
Kennedy died last week at age 77 of a brain tumor.
