Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is in Maine to raise money for the Republican Party.

Governor Paul LePage, Senate President Michael Thibodeau and House Minority Leader Kenneth Fredette are among those expected to attend a reception and fundraiser in Augusta today (May 31) to welcome Demi Kouzounas to her new post as chair of the state Republican Party.

Schilling helped the Red Sox win the World Series in 2004.
