FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - The president of Frederick County's Board of County Commissioners, Blaine Young, says he won't enter the race to become governor of Maryland.

The Republican announced his decision Saturday during a gathering at the Frederick Fairgrounds. Young said he is endorsing Charles County businessman Charles Lollar in the 2014 race to succeed Gov. Martin O'Malley, a Democrat who can't run for re-election because of term limits.

Young said he won't rule out a run for county executive.
