Recently, our Deputy Executive Director sat down with National Journal to discuss the 2016 landscape.

Republicans don't have much time to revel in their new Senate majority. After taking advantage of a 2014 map that included seven Democratic-held seats in red states, the GOP now must defend six seats in states President Obama won twice. And they must do so in a presidential year, when turnout is younger, more diverse, and altogether more favorable to Democrats. Kevin McLaughlin, the National Republican Senatorial Committee's new deputy executive director, knows many of the lessons learned in 2014 just won't apply in 2016. He sat down with National Journal to talk about the coming battle for the Senate majority, why Republicans are vowing not to repeat the mistakes Democrats made in 2014, and how Obamacare will remain relevant even six years after its passage. What follows is a transcript edited for length and clarity.

NRSC Communications Director Andrea Bozek issued the following statement on Senator Barbara Boxer's retirement:

"This could be the first of many Senate retirements thanks to their new Democrat minority status. Today’s news raises the question whether there will be additional Democrat Senate retirements on the horizon. Senate Democrats are already $20 million in debt and Senator Boxer’s retirement can’t be welcome news for the DSCC who has to defend a costly and hotly contested open seat.”

Dr. Bill Cassidy released a new campaign ad, explaining that a vote for him is a vote against President Obama:

This December the 6th, it's our chance to turn our country around. By bringing our values to Washington, to unleash the energy industry, to repeal and replace Obamacare, and to secure the border — with no amnesty. This only happens if we vote to stop Barack Obama.
While Mary Landrieu voted with President Obama 97 percent of the time last year, Bill Cassidy is with you 100 percent of the time. Learn more about becoming a volunteer for Bill here.

Riding a wave of momentum, Dr. Bill Cassidy delivered the GOP's weekly address. You can watch it above.

In his address, Cassidy highlights his decades of experience as a doctor in Louisiana, treating both the uninsured and underinsured. He touts his congressional background and the Keystone XL pipeline's importance:

Building Keystone would create more than 40,000 high-paying jobs, putting billions of dollars in workers' pockets, and give a much-needed boost to America’s construction industry.
Just 27 percent of Americans think the U.S. is heading in the right direction, but 60 percent are in favor of building the Keystone pipeline. Americans spoke loud and clear on November 4th. They want Congress to work together and do what’s right for the American people.

Dr. Cassidy closed his address with a powerful message:

Louisiana needs a senator who can pass Keystone. Louisiana does not need a senator who supports President Obama 97 percent of the time. We need a senator who supports us, the people of Louisiana, 100 percent of the time.
