Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW - September/October 2016 - 13

| FEATURE | Election 2016 Senate Republicans Vision For The Future by Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss. Chairman, National Republican Senatorial Committee AS YOU MAY NOTICE here in Washington, D.C., the exterior of our Capitol dome is draped in scaffolding as it undergoes restoration to repair damage. Fittingly, the inside of our Capitol - and more specifically, the legislative process - has also undergone restoration by the Republican-led U.S. Senate. Following years of dysfunction under Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., the new Republican majority quickly put the Senate back to work on the people's business. Our prolific Senate is passing bills at a rate not seen in decades, providing the American people with real solutions to grow our economy and to strengthen our national security. Our team at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has been just as busy building the most sophisticated and self-reliant Senate campaigns - ever. While nearly every observer spent 2015 speculating as to what would and wouldn't happen in 2016, we were already working with our Senate campaigns to prepare for every possible outcome in the presidential primary. The NRSC mapped out a strategy for our candidates to run concurrently with any potential presidential candidate early last year. But winning a Senate election involves far more than matters regarding the top of the ticket. We have worked with all of our campaigns to ensure they have the necessary resources, tools, and staff in place - from data and digital to finance and communications. While we've spent our efforts and energy preparing for every possible outcome, those on the other side of the aisle are stuck with the least popular Democrat ever to be nominated for the presidency. From the "extreme carelessness" with which she handled highly classified information to her determination to continue the disastrous Obama legacy by ushering in his de facto third term, Hillary Clinton is downright toxic to Democrat Senate candidates. Clinton hasn't just endangered our national security, she's endangered Democrats running for Senate. As it turns out, those very down-ballot Democrats have returned the favor by endangering Clinton's electoral prospects. More than 350,000 jobs were lost on Ted Strickland's watch as Democrat governor of Ohio and fake jobs were created on the resume of Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla. Illinois taxpayers funded Democrat Sen. Tammy Duckworth's whistleblower retaliation settlement and out-of-staters are funding Russ Feingold's broken promises in Wisconsin as he runs for the Senate as a Democrat. Hillary Clinton's record of failed policies, lies, and scandals has finally found its match in Democrat Senate candidates. The once-hyped Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee recruiting efforts yielded nothing more than a roster of scandal-plagued retreads and rookies. After spending millions simply to usher these failed candidates through their own primaries, Washington Democrats must be wondering: how much worse could the alternatives have been? Just as our management of the Senate is better, so too are our candidates. Voters know that Republican senators are focused on issues that matter in their states. Rob Portman and Kelly Ayotte are fighting to reverse the tide of addiction in Ohio and New Hampshire, respectively. Sen. Roy Blunt in Missouri is a tireless advocate for mental health funding. Sens. John McCain in Nevada, Mark Kirk in Illinois and Johnny Isakson in Georgia are ensuring reform and accountability at VA hospitals. Wisconsin's Ron Johnson is providing strong leadership for the safety of our communities as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. We have the best candidates, the best campaigns, the best messages and we have been gearing up for a fight since Day One. No stone has been left unturned, no campaign left unprepared and not a single campaign tool ignored. The NRSC has been unrelenting in our efforts. We haven't joined Democrats in simply hoping for the best. Instead, we've been working for it. As we continue to pass bipartisan solutions, the Senate - a new paradigm for bipartisan productivity - serves as the source of my optimism for where we're headed with our revitalized Republican Congress. And, as we continue writing the book on how to win in an unpredictable environment, the quality of our candidates and the caliber of our campaign committee serve as the source of my optimism upon declaring that we will hold our Senate majority in November. ■ STONE, SAND & GRAVEL REVIEW, www.nssga.org 13 http://www.nssga.org
