MANCHESTER, N.J.—Kim Guadagno, the Republican nominee to run for New Jersey governor, is staking her underdog campaign on a big promise: She says she won’t run for re-election unless she is able to lower property taxes in her first term. Tax bills are an issue the campaign assumes will resonate with voters in the country’s most highly taxed state. But it remains to be seen whether Ms. Guadagno’s platform can overshadow her...
UNION, N.J.—Haitham Khawog was nervous to start school. In addition to the usual jitters that accompany the first day of classes, Haitham is a refugee and didn’t speak English when his family arrived in New Jersey last year after fleeing the war in Syria. When school started, Haitham said he was surprised to encounter female teachers and classmates, because in Syria the schools were segregated by gender after the fourth grade....
The Democratic nominee for New Jersey governor, Phil Murphy, relies on a small inner circle with one member rising above the rest: his wife of 23 years. Tammy Snyder Murphy, who, like her husband, worked at Goldman Sachs Group Inc., is deeply involved in his campaign: Proofreading news releases, joining staff calls, fundraising and attending events as her husband’s surrogate. Republican state Sen. Joe Kyrillos, who is friends...
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".
