As I write this, neither judge nor jury has decided what a "constituent" is in the trial of Senator Robert Menendez, but I'm going to offer my opinion anyway. A "constituent" is anyone who thinks you represent them. Now that's not going to meet any political standard or fit any dictionary definition, I know, but it was my experience during 18 years in the New Jersey Legislature. During all that time I resided in what was then the 32nd Legislative District.
Although she spent half her life in Newark and half in East Orange, Sheila Oliver's fondest memories are of holidays in Jersey City. Every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter were spent with her extended family at "Momma's house." She recalls her grandmother -- Momma they called her -- waiting until Thanksgiving morning to buy a live turkey, bring it home from Journal Square, kill and cook it. She remembers on school holidays trailing her aunt around her shop.
Now he's really gone too far. President Trump loves to issue threats, insults and challenges. From the Mexican "rapists" (except some who are good people) to Senator John McCain (who's not really a hero because he was captured) to Kim Jong-Un, the leader of provocative, nuclear-armed North Korea. He's also attacked such notables as "crooked Hillary" and "Little Marco," politicians Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, Rand Paul, Bill DeBlasio, Lisa Murkowski, Barack Obama, and Mitt Romney.
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".
