Did Ted Cruz just put final nail in Graham-Cassidy bill? AUSTIN - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is still not on board with the latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. "Right now they don't have my vote," Cruz told more than 1,000 people at a political conference in Austin on Sunday morning. Cruz said he and U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, have been pushing for the sponsors of the latest version of the Obamacare repeal to make changes, but those changes are not there yet.
The Democratic Party's best hope in Texas of defeating U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018 has no interest in having former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the campaign trail with him. "No, I don't want Nancy Pelosi to come to Texas to campaign," U.S. Rep. Beto Rourke told hundreds of people at a speech on the University of Texas campus in Austin on Saturday.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has shown no fear in getting in front of television cameras and stirring things up on the politics front. But during a session at a three-day political conference in Austin, Acevedo quickly dismissed a question that he could be aiming to run for higher office, maybe even governor in 2018. The moderator barely got the question out before Acevedo, who has been Houston's police chief for just 10 months made clear he's not running for anything else.
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".
