Although he is trailing in the polls, Republican presidential candidate John McCain got a boost from 38 Studios boss Curt Schilling at a campaign appearance in New Hampshire last night.
Schilling, of course, is better known as the pitching ace of the Boston Red Sox. and that’s the persona he displayed on McCain’s behalf at the rally. As the Boston Herald reports, Schilling told the crowd:
The size of the payroll has nothing to do with the heart and talent of the team. They’d have you believe that we’re down 3-0, but let me tell you I have a little bit of experience with that and it doesn’t mean anything.
As GamePolitics reported last month, Schilling has been a financial supporter of McCain as well.
Also on hand at the event to lend their support to McCain were Joe Lieberman and Sam Brownback, a pair of Senate colleagues with a history of attempting to legislate video games.
