Dana Young gets endorsement of Mark Ober; Tea Party candidate no longer in the race



Dana Young, Republican candidate for the District 57 state House race, has received the endorsement of state attorney Mark Ober, also a Republican. Young will face Democrat Stacy Frank in the general election. Meanwhile, Tea Party candidate Matthew Russell has withdrawn from the contest. (Credit to saintpetersblog for first reporting this.) Russell is a recent college graduate who lives in Tallahassee and filed at the last minute to run for the District 57 seat. Young and Frank are scheduled to face off at the Tampa Tiger Bay meeting next Friday.
