A Statesman review of how Idaho borrows to cover periodic multimillion-dollar dips in cash flow shows that state Treasurer Ron Crane has routinely overpaid to finance those borrowings and could have saved the state millions through competitive bidding. Idaho has borrowed billions of dollars over the last decade to cover those dips, paying millions in interest and fees to underwriters, a part-time financial adviser and outside agencies that grade the state’s debt for investors.
Former Idaho State Republican Chairman Steve Yates plans the formal launch of his campaign for lieutenant governor Tuesday with events in Boise, Coeur d’Alene, and Idaho Falls, where he lives. Yates has scheduled appearances at the state Capitol in Boise in the morning and a Coeur d’Alene restaurant at noon before making a final announcement at the Bonneville County Courthouse in the late afternoon. Yates, 48, was elected GOP state chair in a fraught 2014 state convention and re-elected in 2016.
For $20 — about 1,200 Russian rubles, at current exchange rates — you too can obtain a CD with data on Idaho’s 800,000 voters. The Secretary of State’s Office handed out 200 of them last year to candidates, political parties and others who filed a public records request for the data and paid the fee. The records include name and address, gender, age (but not date of birth), party affiliation and what elections they voted in — but not how they voted or who for, which is never collected.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
