U.S. Sen. John McCain voted Tuesday to allow debate on a Republican bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but said he would not vote to pass the measure in its current fashion. The Republican senator from Arizona, who announced last week that he had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged his colleagues to hold open hearing with bipartisan input on changes to the U.S. health insurance system. "We're getting nothing done," he said.
Just a week after announcing that he had been diagnosed with a serious brain cancer that is nearly always deadly, U.S. Sen. John McCain will return to Washington, D.C.McCain — who had an operation 10 days ago to remove a 2-inch clot from his brain that was later identified as glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer — will return to the Senate on Tuesday, his office said.
With U.S. Sen. John McCain facing a diagnosis of malignant brain cancer, what happens to Arizona's seat in the U.S. Senate if he steps down, or dies in office? While the U.S. Constitution mandates that vacancies in the House of Representatives be filled by elections, it leaves to each state how to fill empty seats in the Senate. In Arizona, the governor appoints an interim senator in the case of a vacancy.
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".
