PA-12 special election today.
Also the Pennsylvania, [Arkansas,] and Kentucky primaries, but hold that thought for a moment. There is a special election today between Tim Burns and Mark Critz. The Republican candidate is fighting a two-to-one registration advantage, a contested primary on the other side scheduled to boost the other side’s turnout, and a media environment that will grudgingly score a Republican win while eagerly waiting to score | Read More »

Two days out on PA-12.
Finally got notified of the PPP poll for PA-12: 48/47 Burns/Critz. There’s been very little movement in the race since PPP polled it a month ago. The main difference is that negative campaigning has driven up both candidates’ negatives by 10-11 points. Where Burns’ favorability was a net +19 in April it’s now just +8. And where Critz was previously at a net +7 it’s | Read More »
Final Weekend – Tim Burns (R CAND, PA-12).
Have you geared up for Tuesday yet? (H/T: The Other McCain) If not: well, get your game face on. Go here to help. Moe Lane
DCCC Ad Pulled For Lies About Tim Burns
As first reported by Moe Lane, Sinclair Broadcasting’s Pittsburgh affiliate WPGH-TV has pulled a recent DCCC ad for making false claims about Republican Candidate Tim Burns, according to a statement from the campaign. The ad falsely stated that Burn supports a 23% national sales tax and that he wants to ship jobs overseas. Burns Campaign Spokesperson Kent Gates notes that Critz has already been called | Read More »
Mark Critz (D CAND, PA-12) ad pulled by WPGH-TV for lying?
Not yet confirmed, but we’ll be checking up on this. We were given the heads’-up on this one by Stacy McCain (@rsmccain, The Other McCain), who is apparently (I think) on the scene of PA-12. [UPDATE] Preliminary checking suggests false alarm, more’s the pity. Ach, well. [ANOTHER UPDATE] Just had more on this come on in. The DCCC (not, strictly speaking, a Critz one) ad | Read More »
Simply Put: PA-12′s Tim Burns Spells Out the Special Election
Republican Tim Burns can’t say it any better with his new “Simply Put” campaign ad. Burns differentiates the two parties succinctly and without slamming his opponent, either. The PA-12 special election to fill the people’s seat that the late Jack Murtha held for so many corrupt years is another opportunity to ring liberty’s bell throughout the halls of the Capitol. Voters in PA-12 take notice and | Read More »

Americans for Prosperity comes out swinging on Net Neutrality
Americans for Prosperity, one of the Beltway area groups that really “gets it,” has come out hard against Net Neutrality and Title II classification of ISPs. They’re actually running television ads on the matter. What’s most interesting to me though is that their ad has three different versions. There’s the generic one above, but their YouTube Channel also shows up with two specialized ones: one | Read More »
Attack of the 50 ft. Pelosi!!
Be. Afraid. . Easily the most photo-realistic graphics since Avatar. Also, if Tim Burns buttons really shoot lasers that is AWESOME. PA-12 is a race of gigantic import. It’s giant. Huge! Tall!

Next Tuesday’s “other race” in Pennsylvania
[from the diaries by haystack] Union bosses are nervous about Pennsylvania. They should be. Next Tuesday is a BIG deal in Pennsylvania, as it is one of the six union “firewall” states that union bosses want to keep in union Democrat control. So far, things aren’t looking so good for them. After the desperate party-switching Arlen Specter got the endorsements of Barack Obama, the SEIU, | Read More »
Eight days and counting on PA-12.
Mike Pence went to PA-12 today to help Tim Burns. Can you help Tim, too? Remember: this is a district that the Democrats cannot afford to lose. And they know it. And they will hate losing it on the 18th. But only if we keep up the pressure.
Tim Burns consolidates his lead
It’s late in the day but I know this race is drawing plenty of interest, so here goes. Daily Kos and Research 2000 hit the PA-12 Special Election. This makes two consecutive polls from sources that lean toward the Democrats. But do Republicans have reason to complain?
