St. Petersburg, Florida -- The wife of late Congressman C.W. Bill Young went to the emergency room Monday night complaining of chest pains.
In an email to 10 News reporter Preston Rudie, Beverly Young said she "got dizzy, (had) pain in my chest and couldn't breathe". But Young says she is now home and "fine".
Young did not say what hospital she went to, but says her stay in the ER lasted about two hours.
Young's late husband died this past October and at the time the Congressman was the longest serving Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Three Republicans are running to fill Congressman C.W. Bill Young's District 13 seat. They are state Representative Kathleen Peters, Young's former General Counsel David Jolly and retired brigadier general Mark Bircher.
The winner of the Republican primary will face Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the March 11 General Election.
