Nick Zoller, a Republican political consultant who recently declared his intentions to run in Congressional District 13, tells me that while he still intends to run next Fall, he will not be a candidate in the upcoming special election. Instead, Beverly Young should serve out the remainder of C.W. Bill Young’s term, Zoller said.
“I believe someone who knew Bill Young well should fill his term,” Zoller wrote to me via Twitter.
Zoller relocated to Pinellas County in 2011. He previously worked on the campaigns of Senators Saxby Chambliss and Lisa Murkowski, and former Senator Scott Brown.
