    ­Independent Journal Review

You may not have heard yet of the ­Independent Journal Review, the conservative news site Skatell founded four years ago, but its traffic now rivals that of the right’s most recognizable online news brands, including Drudge and Breitbart. Skatell is no stranger to the official Republican apparatus: He started out as the digital guru for the Republican Governors Association. And while he’s a full-time entrepreneur now, as his party struggles through an identity crisis, he’s building out a platform that could help it reach the younger voters who will be vital to its rebirth.
