WARREN, R.I. (AP) — Gov. Gina Raimondo says she’s still cleaning up the mess that former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling made in Rhode Island, but she says “best of luck” to him if he runs for office in Massachusetts.

The Democrat made the comments Tuesday when asked about Schilling’s plans to run for office.

Schilling, a Massachusetts resident, said on Facebook on Monday that he’ll run for state office first, then the presidency in eight years. He also criticized Rhode Island politicians.

Schilling moved his failed video game company 38 Studios from Massachusetts to Rhode Island in 2010 in exchange for a $75 million state loan guarantee.

Rhode Island is suing Schilling and several others involved.

Raimondo says she’s fighting to get tax dollars back and that Schilling isn’t popular in Rhode Island.
