May he rest in eternal peace.
This seat likely goes to the Democrats.
Sounds like he made his life count for something besides “self.” RIP, Bill Young.
Rest well Sir

No disrespect to Young, but the political class needs to be culled via Term Limits.
It's high time DC is put in check by the States.
The only viable strategy going forward is to wage class war against the parasite class and target the Washingtonians from both parties that are entrenched in safe Districts.
Of course, the propagandist press must be dealt with.
Putin in Russia just shoots any "reporter" that gets out of line.
The CPUSA here is firmly entrenched in the media and supports the domestic marxists 1000%.
They are enjoying salad days, but their time of reckoning is fast approaching.
I worked his campaign the same year I worked Reagan’s back in the ‘80’s and got to meet him. He was a good man. He had already announced his retirement so it was going to be an open seat. Now, Gov. Rick Scott can appoint his replacement which should give an advantage.
I knew Congressman Young,
He was a very humble and genital soul that walked the halls of power as the peoples servant, a true republican in the strictest since of the word; for the public, for his people, Pinellas County, the state of Florida and the United States of America.
He will be missed by his constituents, and I will miss him.
We just got re-districted into his territory. He seemed like a good guy, but that’s way too long for anyone to spend on the hill.
He is a perfect example of why we need term limits.
Watched Shep break into Greta’s show with news of his death. It was really weird because they made zero mention that he was Republican. Not even in the graphics with his name and title. Didn’t quite get that.
He should have been retired 10 years ago at least.
It’s BS to have 82 year olds voting on laws that effect millions of citizens.
We need a forced retirement age and term limits.
RIP Rep. Young
My friend Scott Barr who lives there is thinking of running. He is a ex-Marine and would do a great job.
