Our Affiliates

  • Established in 2009, Cloture Club was created to be a grand central for information that Hill rats and DC folks would enjoy. A hub for the need to know. The first two staples were events and jobs, but more and more content seemed to flow from its creative writers. Expanding into restaurant reviews, fashion, election coverage, movie reviews and more, there’s a subject for everyone.
