Clearwater, Florida- Two more names can be added to the list of people who will not run for the late Congressman C.W. Bill Young's seat.
Former St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker confirmed today that he is not going to run for the seat despite encouragement to run in the special election in January. Also, current Clearwater mayor George Cretekos says he will not run.
These announcements come after Bill Young's son also said he would not run for the seat.
So far, no Republicans have announced their plans to run for the seat. Two Democrats, former Florida gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink and lawyer Jessica Ehrlich, have announced their candidacies.
