Castor defends Young



Rep. Kathy Castor is distancing herself from state Democratic chairwoman Karen Thurman's recent charge that Rep. C.W. Bill Young, R-Indian Shores, had let down veterans by not doing more to fix problems at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

"It was a little too political," the Tampa Democrat said of Thurman in a Political Connections interview airing at 11 a.m. on Bay News 9 (and later on Channel 342, Bay News 9 on demand). "Congressman Bill Young has devoted a large part of his career to serving veterans and the war wounded."
