Senate Democrats seeking campaign advice 

The Democratic fundraising arm in the Senate is gearing up for the 2012 elections by soliciting suggestions from their supporters about the slogan they should employ to help keep Republicans from picking up the four seats they need to capture the majority.

In an email entitled, "A slogan that sticks," the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee gives the recipient five choices:

- We've Got Your Back, Barack

- Repeal Republicans in 2012

- Had Enough Tea?

- Brick by Brick, We're Building a Firewall

- Hey GOP? You're Firewalled

The firewall is in reference to the now slim majority the Democrats hold in the Senate, which they said prevents, "radical bills coming from the House side from becoming law."

Democrats point out in their email that they have 23 seats up for grabs in the Senate, while Republicans have just 10 seats to defend, so a Republican takeover is a real threat.

"We can’t let that happen, and a great slogan will help get our message out," the missive says. "Your words could end up on T-shirts, tote bags … the possibilities are endless."

Participants can also write their own slogan if they don't like the five choices.
