Koch executive to Dems: Why did I get solicited?

(CNN) – The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee responded Friday to a scathing letter from a top executive at Koch Industries, Inc., who blasted the group after he was solicited for campaign contributions.

Philip Ellender, president for government and public affairs at Koch Industries, a frequent Democratic target, said he received a letter and voicemail from DSCC Chair Patty Murray in June. He posted the audio from the voicemail on KochFacts.com, a website dedicated to defending the influential conservative Koch brothers - David and Charles.

Washington (CNN) - To keep control of the Senate, Patty Murray, Chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, is targeting six currently Republican held Senate seats while defending the 23 seats held by Democrats up for reelection in 2012.

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee makes new hire

Washington (CNN) - The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced the hiring of Matt Canter as their new communications director Wednesday. He was previously the communications director for Democratic New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Canter will make the leap from managing the communications for one Senate campaign to managing the message for senatorial campaigns across the country as Democrats seek to hold on to their majority. With twice as many Democratic senators retiring than Republicans, Democrats must ready a battle plan for 2012 that accounts for the obstacles of keeping blue the seats of three retiring Democratic senators and one retiring senator who caucuses with Democrats, Joe Lieberman.
