He had reportedly been mentioned in recent days in both Texas and Washington as a possible candidate for the GOP-friendly district, although an aide to the National Republican Congressional Committee said that House GOP recruitment officials haven’t “spoken directly to him.””Roger Clemens would be a good candidate, but we don’t need a celebrity baseball player to win it,” the aide told ABC News. “It’s Texas. We have a huge bench down there.”Clemens is the second former Red Sox pitcher in recent days to be mentioned in congressional news. Curt Schilling told the Arizona Republic last week he is “absolutely considering” a bid for Congress in Arizona.
