State Representative Kathleen Peters announced Tuesday morning she is one of six people running in the special election to replace Bill Young in Congress. From Pinellas Park, Peters and her supporters outlined why she should win the Republican primary and face Alex Sink in the closely watched special election.

Peters enters a Pinellas County race that could go either way. President Barack Obama carried the district in 2008 and 2012, but it was represented by Republican Bill Young from 1971 until he died last month. Peters says elected officials should put the people first.
