The U.S. Senate agreement to reopen the government Monday is under fierce fire from immigration activists, but Sen. Jeff Flake says it may provide "dreamers" their best shot at a pathway to citizenship. Under the deal, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., agreed to take up immigration legislation on or before Feb. 8, when funding for the government is set to run out again.
In a closed-door meeting last May with her fellow House Republicans, Rep. Martha McSally tried to rally support for a GOP plan to rollback the Affordable Care Act. Let's get this "f--king thing" done, she said, according to a then-Associated Press reporter who broke the news on Twitter. Once upon a time, such an expletive might have been a liability for a politician. But this month, McSally, R-Ariz., highlighted her profane quote in a campaign video announcing her candidacy for the U.S. Senate.
Rep. Steve King, the controversial Iowa congressman known for his hard-line stance on illegal immigration, is endorsing Kelli Ward in Arizona's Republican U.S. Senate race. “Dr. Ward will be a fighter for America First policies that prioritize the safety, security, and well-being of the American people,” King said in a written statement announcing his support for Ward, a former state senator from Lake Havasu City who is making her second bid for the U.S. Senate.
"I do think that they have a better chance now to have a long-term solution instead of another short-term fix," Sen. @JeffFlake told The Arizona Republic. "No guarantee, but a better chance." #DACA#Dreamershttp://azc.cc/2F672fJ
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".
