The new U.S. Senate health care bill made public for the first time Thursday on Capitol Hill could drastically affect Georgia. Like us on FacebookGeorgia State University professor Bill Custer said it could mean more Georgians losing coverage. Even more than the 720,000 he estimated would be without coverage based on his analysis of a bipartisan report on the health care bill passed by the House last month.
The more than $30 million spent by Democrats to boost Jon Ossoff’s campaign wasn’t enough for a win in the special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District that went to Republican Karen Handel by a larger than anticipated margin. Like us on Facebook“A huge win for Karen Handel, a great win for President Trump and a momentum win for the Georgia Republican Party,” said recently elected Georgia GOP chairman John Watson. In 2016, Tom Price won the 6th District by nearly 24 points.
The cheers started early at Karen Handel's election headquarters Tuesday night. They kept coming each time Fox TV updates showed the Republican holding her lead. Like us on FacebookAfter months of frenzied campaigning, 6th District voters decided to send Georgia’s first Republican woman to Congress. Pamela Alayon said she’d stood out in the rain this week to wave Handel signs in Roswell. She summed up a big theme of the night among Handel supporters. “They did everything.
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".
