DSCC looks to rile activists against 'Big Oil'

In conjunction with the party's effort in Washington, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) has launched an online petition urging activists to support its stance.

Through Google and Facebook advertisements, and direct emails, some 73,000 activists have signed an online petition calling for an end to the industry tax breaks.

The DSCC, in a release, said it plans to use this issue against Republican Sens.
