Burns faced Roy Harmon, Tom Kolarik, Chris Sullivan and Randall Young in the Republican primary on January 11, 2013. Burns missed winning outright by one vote and went to a runoff with Chris Sullivan, which Burns won. Since no write-in Democrat filed to run by February 21, Burns was declared the winner on March 12.
