"I don't know that I would pick out one thing. It's a lot of things. My family, my job, my rehabilitation from my back," he told the Tampa Bay Times over the phone.

"I love every one of these guys," Young said of the Tea Party House members. "They're doing what they think is right. That's what I did."
