National Review publisher Jack Fowler sent out a fundraising email Wednesday claiming that the magazine’s “Against Trump” issue was instrumental in Donald Trump’s defeat in the Iowa caucus.
Fowler writes: “NR’s bold and intelligent stand against the seeming Trump juggernaut created a massive stir in the media. And, evidently, among Iowa voters. The last few days, Rich Lowry [National Review editor] and I and our colleagues have received numerous calls, e-mails, tweets, and the like, commending us for publishing ‘Against Trump,’ and for its impact on the Iowa caucuses.”
A request to the National Review for circulation numbers in Iowa has not been returned by time of publication.
