Former major league pitcher Curt Schilling says he's decided not to run for Congress.
Schilling told a Phoenix sports radio station Tuesday that he decided not to run because of "things that have been said and done" to his wife and children since he announced he was thinking about challenging Democratic Rep. Tom O'Halleran.
