Limbaugh to star in DNC roadside ad

WASHINGTON (CNN) - National Democrats plan to unveil a new theme Thursday morning in their ongoing campaign to portray conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh as the true leader of the Republican Party.

"Americans didn't vote for a Rush to failure," is the slogan that will be splashed across a billboard in Limbaugh's hometown of West Palm Beach, Florida, and printed on T-shirts, a Democratic National Committee official told CNN.

Limbaugh has said several times that he hopes President Barack Obama fails, a sentiment that has put elected Republicans in a tight spot during this time of economic crisis.

The DNC official said more than 80,000 slogans were submitted for the contest, and more than 50,000 people helped narrow the list to the top five.

The timing of when the billboard will be set up has not been finalized, the official said.
