Courtney Guastella, a respected GOP fundraiser who has handled financing for some of the biggest conservative names in Louisiana, has cleared her political calendar to handle just one bigwig client: U.S. Sen. John Kennedy. The move only fans the speculation that the junior senator is aiming to run for governor. Sources close to Kennedy say Guastella has transitioned away from working for some of her better-known clients, like Attorney General Jeff Landry.
Members of the Mystick Krewe of Louisianians, the nerve center for the annual Washington Mardi Gras weekend, received an eye-opening email earlier this month. “I am asking krewe members to sell back his/her tickets,” wrote senior lieutenant and krewe treasurer Ted Jones.
Here’s all you need to know about what happened Tuesday in Louisiana politics:1.) It was cold. Interstates were shut down. People who rarely see snow captured video of it falling to the ground. Kids were home from school. So were many state workers. Former Sen. Marty Chabert tweeted an image of an actual crawfish wearing a pink sweater that someone at some point knitted. — THE TAKEAWAY: You get the picture. It was cold. 2.) Florida Gov. Rick Scott told Gov.
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".
