Craftsman mower won't start.

Was mowing and mower backfired and stopped. Wouldn't restart. Changed gas, spark plugs and cleaned filters, etc. (left plug was very wet, right plug was normal.) Gas comes up through carb. but even though it tries to turn over, it won't. At first it ran but when I let go of key, it stopped and now won't run.

What's in it? Sounds like it might be flooding.
