Mower Won't Start After Accidentally Filling With Edger Gas/Oil Mix

We put the edger gas (has oil mixture) into our new Toro lawnmower. We cleaned it out, but it still won't start. Help.

If you have any gas oil mix left in the mower I would siphon it out with a turkey baster, and then put on a new spark plug. It will smoke a lot and if you tipped it to get the gas out, it might be hard to start but it has not actually hurt the mower.

Does the mower have oil where it is supposed to?
