Tim Burns (R) on the Campaign Trail.

Having a 44%-41% lead in the polls, even when your opponent has a 2.2-1 voter registration advantage, hints to a campaign with a little momentum behind it.

Having the support of local candidates and officials is another positive sign, but when statewide candidates, like Pat Toomey and Tom Corbett get out and stump for you, the momentum is more than just a hint.

Having an invite or even a speaking role at a Tea Party event is great, but when one of the largest national Tea Party in the country, FreedomWorks, and their founder Dick Armey get behind you, the momentum is beginning to really build.

Having a several local bloggers posting in your favor is another good sign, but when national blogging icons like Erick Erickson of Red State, John Hawkins of Right Wing News and Dan Riehl of Riehl World View all publicly support your candidacy, you may have some serious momentum behind you.

Having the support local TV and radio is great, but when your candidacy is getting support from national TV and radio icons like Rose Tennett of Quinn and Rose, Hugh Hewitt from the Hugh Hewitt Show and Sean Hannity from the Sean Hannity Show, there is major momentum behind your candidacy.

Having potential 2012 Republican Presidential candidates like; Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Tim Pawlenty and Rick Santorum all get behind your campaign is an amazing demonstration of political momentum, but being endorsed by former Vice Presidential candidate, Queen of the Tea Party and GOP kingmaker, Sarah Palin behind your candidacy is a coup d’etat beyond almost any Congressional candidate’s dreams.  One which clearly demonstrates the overwhelming local, statewide and national momentum behind Tim Burns’ PA-12 Congressional campaign.

The Tim Burns campaign has some serious momentum behind it.

    As was discussed at the After Party. Tim’s sincerity just show through when you have the chance to talk to him one on one. I think I am a very good judge of folks and I truely think he is running for the good of the folks in the district and not for himself. I think both men would be good for the country, I do like Bill but Tim does have IT.

      Hey Buddy! Yes, he is a great guy. The buzz and momentum are definitely in Tim’s favor right now. And they keep on coming.

    I’m glad to see Tim getting so much attention. People across the country are looking at this race with excitement and help is coming in from all over.

    I mentioned this race in our last Hanover County VA Republican Committee meeting and people were asking for contact info for him. Same with Charles Djou in Hawaii 1, which follows PA-12.

    I have known Tim from the days before he was a “millionaire businessman” and I will tell you he earned every penny of those millions and I don’t begrudge him one bit for them. He is caring and honest person who has made a payroll and sacrificed his own well being to make sure a bunch of programmers had a pay-check more than once in that previous life. Maybe, just maybe if we are lucky Washington will get someone with some real-world experience who has started, built and sold a business, who has made a payroll and has created a job…. I think that is why Tim is going to do well and places like Johnstown and Waynesburg and Uniontown are damn lucky to have someone like him to be willing to go to Washington on their behalf…..
