Beverly Young appears at fundraiser, one day after going to hospital



   Beverly Young, the widow of longtime Republican U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, appeared at a fundraiser for congressional candidate David Jolly Wednesday night. 

   The night before, she went to the hospital complaining of chest pains, but was later released, her son Patrick said. Beverly and Patrick Young were honorary hosts of the fundraiser Wednesday

   Jolly, a former aide to Rep. Young, is running for the seat left vacant when the congressman died in October. He is running against fellow Republicans Mark Bircher and Kathleen Peters in the Jan. 14 primary election. The winner in that contest will face Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the March 11 general election.

   The district extends from south Pinellas to Dunedin, with portions of downtown and southern St. Petersburg cut out.
