mower not starting

Briggs and Stratton 14.5 HP OHV
model #287707
type 0220 01
code 950534A

uncovered mower this spring and tried starting mower and smelled gas. I thought the engine was flooded so I removed the air filter and tried starting it again. that time I noticed that gas was spitting back into the air filter base. I never used the choke and it was open. any suggestions would be appreciated

Floats struck in the carburetor.
Remove it clean, with carb. cleaner and rebuild it with all new gaskets.
