In his second book, Killer Politics: How Big Money and Bad Politics Are Destroying the Great American Middle Class (2010), Schultz extols his view that corrupt politics motivated by greed are destroying democracy and the American family.
After divorcing a first wife, Schultz remarried to a nurse named Wendy. Schultz credits wife Wendy with leading him “out of the right-wing darkness” by introducing him to the homeless people and veterans at the Salvation Army shelter where she worked. With Wendy’s encouragement, Schultz also toured the Dakotas, where he sympathized with the plight of struggling farmers.
Ed and Wendy Schultz have six children. Their son Dave is a professional golfer. Although a large family, the Schultzes are a tight-knit clan; they hunt, fish and even fly together. In August of 2012, Schultz announced to the public that Wendy had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. After taking a couple of weeks off to accompany his wife through treatment, Schultz returned to radio and television, thanking his loyal viewers and listeners for their encouragement and support.
