New documents released by the site WikiLeaks revealed a list of taglines that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton considered using as her slogan for the 2016 campaign.

The email was sent from Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook to a group of campaign strategists and pollsters, and included an attachment that listed 85 potential slogans that the campaign could employ.

While Republican nominee Donald Trump came out of the gate with the slogan, “Make America Great Again,” the Clinton campaign went through a long, drawn out process in order to settle on a slogan.

The document attached to the email lists the potential slogans under one of eight themes; 1) Fairness/Families, 2) Fighter, 3) Basic Bargain/Make America Work, 4) Results/Count on, 5) Strength, 6) In it together, 7) Future/Forward, and 8) It’s about you.

The campaign decided to use “Stronger Together” as its slogan for the campaign, which was listed under the theme of “strength.”

Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon told NPR that “stronger together” is a shorter, “21st century” version of the idea behind “It Takes A Village,” the title of Clinton’s 1996 book. “She, I think, was struggling in the Democratic primaries to identify a message and a tag line that summed up the purpose of her campaign,” former top Obama strategist David Axelrod opined. “Donald Trump has given her a purpose.”

WikiLeaks has released thousands of emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account. The leaked emails exposed the inner workings of the Hillary Clinton campaign and how the campaign is run behind closed doors.

The emails have revealed the transcripts of paid speeches that Clinton gave to Wall Street and paid speeches that she gave to foreign banks where she supported open trade and open borders. The campaign has refused to release or discuss the paid speeches.

The Clinton campaign has refused to confirm the authenticity of all the emails, and instead has pushed the message that they are victims of Russian hackers trying to swing the election in Trump’s favor. The strategy is to question the veracity of the emails, rather than attempt to defend its contents.
