Dick Morris Gives Tim Burns a PA-Sen Shoutout

By Brittany Hundzynski, Contributing Writer

Tim Burns hasn’t yet decided on a U.S. Senate bid, but he’s already drawing a bit of national support.

Conservative pundit Dick Morris singled out Burns for a brief shoutout this week in a post about Republican chances of retaking the U.S. Senate. Morris lists Pennsylvania among a list of states the GOP can target, saying, “Tim Burns would be great.”

Burns told PoliticsPA earlier this month that he is leaning toward a run.

On his blog, Morris argued that there are already strong Republican candidates in 12 seats now held by Democrats. He claimed that each seat could be won in a 10 to 15 point landslide.

Morris is an author, pollster and political consultant. He served as an advisor to Bill Clinton and a strategist for Republican Chirsty Milhos, among numerous others. He’s a frequent commentator on the cable news circuit.

Morris was a guest at a fundraiser during Burns’ run for Congress against Mark Critz in 2010. He further solicited fundraising help from his own supporters.

“Tim lost the special election fill John Murtha’s seat last year but he is neck and neck with Mark Critz who won the seat. He has an aggressive campaign going on and can probably take this swing seat in a rematch,” he wrote in October 2010.
