The news that Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is retiring after 42 years, combined with the likelihood that Mitt Romney is going to run for, and presumably win, his seat, was wildly cheered by the “Never Trump” contingent of the Republican Party. We’ll see if that elation is premature. But boy was it welcomed. Things haven’t been going well for the Never Trump crowd. They cheered when Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) came out with a book denouncing what Trump has done to the party.
Romney hasn't gone back to his anti-Trump position since pre-election 2016. He's a politically savvy player who's too smart to go up against Trump. The news that Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is retiring after 42 years, combined with the likelihood that Mitt Romney is going to run for, and presumably win, his seat, was wildly cheered by the “Never Trump” contingent of the Republican Party. We’ll see if that elation is premature. But boy was it welcomed.
When Has A President Been Denied His Party's Nomination? This question is from Michael Stubbs of Cincinnati, Ohio:It only happened once to an elected president. That was Franklin Pierce, the 14th president, who was elected as a Democrat in 1852. His pro-Southern sentiments and his policy of failing to lead on the divisive issue of slavery badly hurt his standing with the voters.
No matter what happens tomorrow, the fact that we are in this situation, with one day to go, is a disgrace. No deal is in sight. No one is giving an inch. No adults. And now the Washington parlor game is to figure out which side is to blame. An absolute disgrace.
Tomorrow is D-Day for passing a spending bill to fund the government. Will there be a shutdown? Who will blink first? Can there be any winners? Or do we all lose? Friday on @wunc’s @state_of_things, 12:06pm Eastern.
The question every American wants to know: Did he say “hole” or “house?” And either way, does that make him a “head?” Things to think of as we approach Friday’s government shutdown deadline. Thursday on @WOSUAllSides, a full hour at 10-11am Eastern.
Today, we remember a man who had a dream and who believed in peace and dignity. Tomorrow, sadly, the dream ends as we talk about the reality of current politics, and current leaders. Tuesday on @MPRnews at 9:06am CT/10:06am ET, and @CapRadioInsight at 9:06am PT/12:06pm ET. https://t.co/7p8s4FhcVm
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".
