CHARLESTON, W.Va. —Â Tim Armstead spent 2007 to 2014 as the Minority Leader in the House of Delegates. Since then, with Republicans swinging to the majority, Armstead has been the Speaker. So when Armstead announced Friday that he doesn’t intend to run for re-election, it became pretty clear that Republican delegates are in for some big changes. The first order of business for Republicans will be an effort to retain the majority during the 2018 election cycle.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — House Speaker Tim Armstead says he will not run again for election to the House of Delegates. “I’ve made a decision to 2018 and am looking to the future in something I’m considering,” said Armstead, R-Kanawha. “I’m not planning to run for re-election to the House of Delegates this year.”Armstead made the announcement public today on MetroNews’ “Talkline.” The Speaker went into a caucus with House Republicans prior to that to tell them the news.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Lawmakers are starting to weigh whether it’s prudent to add the $35 million Gov. Jim Justice wants for the Department of Commerce while nearly tripling the state Division of Tourism budget. Members of the House Finance Committee heard presentations on Friday morning from representatives of those agencies, including Commerce Secretary Woody Thrasher and Tourism Commissioner Chelsea Ruby.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
