When Tammy Baldwin was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012, she made history as the first out lesbian to win that office. Now she’s up for re-election, and, despite a year that looks increasingly good for Democrats, Baldwin is facing a tough fight as the Republican party singles her out as one of its main targets. Baldwin represents Wisconsin, which has been successful grounds for Republicans in recent years. Gov. Scott Walker was elected twice and survived a recall challenge.
In the ongoing debate following the Parkland school shooting in Florida, President Trump has held many positions, most of them contradictory. For a while, he favored raising the age for buying assault weapons and seizing weapons from potentially disturbed people without due process. Once the NRA got hold of Trump, he quickly abandoned anything like gun control and now is pushing to arm teachers. The one consistent theme in Trump’s remarks is the need to protect students.
Remember when Ivanka Trump was going to be the firewall between us and the crazies in her dad’s administration? If you haven’t figure it out by now, that’s never going to happen. Now we have Ivanka’s own word for it. In a profile in the Washington Post, Ivanka acknowledges that she doesn’t see her role as advocating publicly against policies she disagrees with.
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".
