Just another reminder that you’re not getting all of NR unless you’ve signed up for NRPlus. For about 5 bucks a month, you get access to all of our content—including the pieces that are behind our metered paywall—an almost entirely ad-free experience, the ability to comment on articles, access to our private Facebook group, and invitations to take part in calls and events. We had a call with Devin Nunes a couple of weeks ago and will have a NRPlus meet-up with our subscribers and staff in D.C. soon, as well as similar events around the country. NRPlus has been growing strongly over the last year, we believe because it’s such a good deal and such a vibrant community. Please check it out and we hope you sign up.
